A Day Off

I enjoyed a day off from work today to recoup from minor surgery. The time passed quickly and painlessly thanks to the iPod and the music of Charlie "Bird" Parker, Dave Brubeck, J.R. Monterose, John Coltrane, and Miles Davis.

I have enjoyed exploring bassist William Parker's album "Corn Meal Dance." I typically don't enjoy vocals but if you listen for Parker everything else seems to melt away.

Today's post is short -- for obvious reasons. I hope to still attend Nachito Herrera's gig tomorrow night at the Dakota. Review will follow.

Enjoy it all.
