I continue to believe that jazz is an art form that has become the most internationally cooperative means of communication in the world today. As artists and listeners alike have found out it can be a tremendously spiritual medium allowing us to transcend everyday life with beauty and connectivity.
On this Fourth of July, let our passion for the music continue with this yearly celebration of these communicators, those who have been and continue to be so instrumental in bringing us this music we love so much.
For lovers of piano jazz trios it was one of those very special evenings. Zeitlin is an innovator par excellence with few peers. His trio with the great Buster Williams and the exciting Matt Wilson is one of the finest trios working in jazz today.
