well the unfortunate thing for me was that the mingus big band didn't play his classic song of the same name. you see, mean gene saxomafone is in from las vegas visiting family and along with seeing clerks 2 with him last friday, he palnned on seeing the mingus big band while he was in town. you see when charles mingus passed, his wife kept his music alive and breathing in a city in which all popular culture is slowly shrinking due to the need to build more luxury loft apartments for people with strollers. not that i have anything against having children because the bastard has a child as well. i just find it interesting that on an island where the streets are narrow, too narrow for wealthy suburbanites pricing regular folk outof their own city. but i digress.
the band went on short a horn player and 2 sax players. one of the two sax's showed up and the tenor of the band changed as this guy wanted to play more obscure tunes. the drummer lost his cool and walked off the stage and the pianist had to fill in for the rest of the set. shit was fast and loose, and i'm going to have go back again to see what they do the next time they play. and i think i have enough tuesdays left in me that i can do this again a few more times before i'm through.
