  •  My mom played Brubeck, too (4+ / 0-)

    and I'm pretty sure I was introduced to mixed meter through her recordings of him.

    I'm so glad I found your diary.  I play in a regional orchestra in TX and Chris is one of our featured artists in 2013. He's appearing w/Peter "Madcat" Ruth and Joel Brown. Now when I'm sitting there looking at him, I'll think of this diary and your descriptions.  Thank you so much!

    The truth always matters.

      You should have a lot of fun with those guys.

      The priest said, "Today's sermon is called 'Liars', but first I have a question. How many of you have read Chapter 66 in Matthew?" Nearly every hand went up. "You're just the group I need to speak to," the priest said. "There's no such chapter."

      Triple Play is one of the most fun bands I've ever seen -- particularly Madcat, who's a sneaky good musician and a great vocalist. Joel Brown's the Dean of Music at Skidmore, and Chris has been an adjunct there.

      I love Chris -- multi-talented musician with a terrific sense of humor, and under that beard he's definitely got his dad's smile. Here's an interview I did with Chris last year.

        Thanks for the interview link!  I'll share it with both my husband and standmate.  

        I'm sure that concert will be a hell of lot more fun than playing Babes in Toyland and Sleighride for the eleventy-seventh time!
