It's my birthday on Friday and at about 4am my wife and I are flying off to Miami for a one week jazz cruise…
The bad news is that Bucky Pizzarelli was supposed to come, but his wife has some medical issues.
The good news is that Howard Alden will be aboard!http://howardalden.com/ha4/
If you ever saw Woody Allen's jazz guitarist movie "Sweet and Lowdown", Howard Alden is the guitarist who did the music for the film… hope I can get a lesson with him for my birthday!
Paul Cezanne: "I could paint for a thousand years without stopping and I would still feel as though I knew nothing."
Edgar Degas: "Only when he no longer knows what he is doing does the painter do good things.... To draw, you must close your eyes and sing."
Georges Braque: "In art there is only one thing that counts: the bit that can’t be explained."
