The Charles McPherson Quartet with Jeb Patton, David Wong, and Chuck McPherson will be playing a concert in Santa Fe, NM on Wednesday July 25. The following night the same quartet will be playing in Taos, NM. just by coincidence my wife and I will be traveling to New Mexico at the same time. So we will be attending both concert. The one in Santa Fe, July 25, and the concert on July 26 in Taos, NM Wonder if anyone on this board who lives in New Mexico will be at either concert? If so perhaps we can meet and say hi.
