On Friday, January 29th, The Marshall Tucker Band was in Town the same night that Yoyo Ma and Emanual Ax were performing at Carnegie Hall. I saw both. Yoyo Ma & Emanual Ax were great, but to my liking, the program could have used a Brahms sonata. The MT Band, Southern Rock’s  best, just keeps getting better and better.

This duo, artistically combining passion, precision, and planning is outright heavely

Pulitzer Prize winning Aaron Jay Kernis is an American Composer of great renown. He had his 50th birthday celebration at Poisson Rouge and it was a wonderful musical event. I was just glad to be there.

The party was at Poisson Rouge, but the fish were actually big orange "gold fish."

The music was terrific because it was Aaron's music that they played.

Pete Seeger’s 90th birthday celebration at Madison Square Garden was a very special event. Lots of very famous singers came to wish Pete well.  I got to hang out backstage withfriends. Afterwords, we went to another birthday party for Pete at a restaurant.
