Jazz Fest


Tonight DH (Dear Husband) and I went to the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra and listened to pieces by the composers Wagner and Copland. During the intermission the audience had a choice to return to continue to enjoy the classical program or remain in the foyer to listen to jazz musicians. Jaime went back to hear Bach, but I stayed to listen to a trio consisting of a South African percussionist/drummer, a Cuban pianist, and an American saxophonist. When the regular program ended a few patrons remained to join us to continue listening to very smooth jazz. I like this kind of innovation, especially if it includes jazz music.
