It is nice to back after four whirlwind days.
Not much to say that hasn't already been said. I want to mention the post by Carl Wilson (Zoilus). Carl was on the panel that discussed Blogging. He shares some good thoughts here.
Also, I just want to send out my respect on the anniversary of Michael Brecker's passing. Much has been written and I won't add but to share my one Brecker Story:
My wife took me to see the "Directions in Music" tour in 2003 (I think). We were living in Chicago and the group was at Ravinia. We were on the lawn which is normally a bit noisy with picnickers etc. Michael played the solo version of Namia and it went about 10 minutes. At the end, the whole park was silent, it seemed like the crickets even shut up. I had never been in an outdoor setting where the audience was SO tuned in to a performance.
Remember him in your own way today...
