It was a good weekend.
Friday night, Katy and I went to a performance of what was billed as the Stuart Ashley Quartet at the Kemper Museum. It ended up being just a trio. (Or was that a joke? The James Dean Trio was actually a six-piece…) It was a great show, but probably not for the faint. They played free jazz that took the listener through some tasty passages. As is the case all too often with great performances, there were criminally few in attendance. I guess it was such a good night that everyone was outside enjoying the weather and not inside a cool art museum having their minds blown by great music.
I delivered pizzas Saturday night and brought along David Bowie, The Cure and the Lost Dogs along for the ride.
I am working on my first discussion of album art for the site. I will focus on Dave Brubeck’s Time Out. So be looking for that and another episode this week.
