I willingly admit that fall is my favorite time of the year. Perhaps it has something to do with living in the Catskills and having access to nature’s artistry and her gentle reminder that she is still the best at “just being”. Fall with October being the best month ever. Why? Halloween of course!!!! My favorite holiday, period. Pagan, yeah, perhaps, still you can’t beat the costumes, the begging/then threatening for candy, the scary stuff…..And then there’s those incredible birthday cards and wishes for which I’m finding there are not words powerful enough to express my gratitude.
Our guest for October on Tales from the Jazz Side is cellist and bassist Jennifer Vincent. I’ve added for your listening pleasure a cut from “Standard Delivery” the second CD on Dead Horse Records. This one features Jennifer as we perform a duet, Honeysuckle Rose.
“But then fall comes, kicking summer out on its treacherous ass as it always does one day sometime after the midpoint of September, it stays awhile like an old friend that you have missed. It settles in the way an old friend will settle into your favorite chair and take out his pipe and light it and then fill the afternoon with stories of places he has been and things he has done since last he saw you.”
― Stephen King, ‘Salem’s Lot
