Joy abounds as we rush into the future. This year the holidays are all happening at once and so suddenly. Hanukkah, Thanksgiving and Christmas—all twelve days of it—and so much more. I began getting ready for Thanksgiving dinner a few days ago. I have to cook in easy stages as I am learning new skills while working from a wheel chair.
Twelve people to dinner on Thursday. Saturday, after class, the Christmas decorations go up. Thanks to the loving help of my students. We are all practicing for our holiday concert on December 21. It will be next door at 123 West 71 Street at two o'clock. It’s free and a sing-a-long...children are welcome. They will all be given an instrument to play.
The Red Lion was great on Monday. Our music director, Skip Brevis was brilliant, as was guitarist Bruce Gordon. They were joined by Jake Holmes, Amanda Homi, David Buskin and George Wurzbach, who has hinted that Modern Man is getting together again.
To everyone who missed Monday night, it’s not only terrific music but a great hang. Lots of great musicians in the audience, Barrot Zinn, Pat Timberg, my assistant Shayna Feuer, who handled the sound as our engineer on Monday and did a wonderful job.
