Working on my BS in Music Therapy at Molloy College to be the difference I want to see.

Working on owning a coffee shop too, because coffee helps you be the difference you want when you'd rather pass out.

Currently traveling the world, searching my soul, cooking my food, living my life, loving my living, and making my music and rhythms and harmonies as they come along inside our little blue corner of the universe.

Taken by the most amazing girl in the known universe :)

Composers….they’re just like us. They play ping pong and chess, ride bikes, feed pigeons, go swimming, and oh yeah, write fantastic music. Check out this fun blog of composers doing normal stuff.(Pictured: Antonín Dvořák feeding some pigeons)

Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers: Moanin’ in Brussels, 1958

This clip, which I believe is from a Brussels concert issued on DVD by Jazz Icons, is the November-December 1958 tour by Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers. The band was new and had just finished recording the Blue Note album that introduced Bobby Timmons’ Moanin’ and several classic Benny Golson compositions. Golson only stayed with the band for three months and was replaced by Hank Mobley and finally Wayne Shorter. But here is an early live version of Moanin’ before it was a hit.
