This evening – Wednesday, February 11, 2015, I went to the hallowed temple, Massey Hall and got my soul good and besotted on the masterful soufulness that is the Jazz At Linccoln Center Orchestra led by Wynton Marsalis.  Boy, did I come undone when the Cuban balladeer not only danced but scatted like it was nobody’s business.  Now if this concert does not prove the leap off point for some truly poetic dreams then lord help me…

Happy Black history month!  Sweet dreams as ever!
