Ray is ecstatic. My sister Marcia is visiting . He’s so in love with her that he follows her all over the house.
I will admit that he’s guilty of acting out and showing off around her.
I’m having fun too. but I know how to behave when there’s company. I entertain.
All last night we watched the video over and over of Paul Simon singing “Late In The Evening” with Steve Gadd playing great and looking hot and the sweet smile of the late Richard Tee bringing tears to my eyes. The joy they all had playing together was great to see.
I guess I have to thank my ex husband dave. Without him I wouldn’t know all these wonderful musicians, some of whom still talk to me.
I was lucky to be around to witness so many beautiful musical moments. For example, in the 70’s dave’s band played at The Five Spot which was the quintessential jazz club of the time. Musicians from all over town would come to see them.
One night I was sitting with the band during a break when one of them noticed a pretty girl cello player. She was sitting with some friends and she happened to have her legs spread apart while she was talking to them.
The sax player in dave’s band looked over and mumbled thoughtfully, “So that’s what it looks like without the cello.”
Maybe that doesn’t count as a major musical moment but who am I? Tolstoy?
