This week’s quote is from the great jazz movie ‘Round Midnight, starring actual sax player Dexter Gordon, who is absolutely amazing:

It’d be the greatest city in the world, if I could just find some okra.

Mmm… okra…

And, of course, there’ll be other people’s cats…

Zoom

My brother’s cat Zoom again.

    Better late than never-just wanted to say that I was privileged to know Dexter Gordon.

    Ooo. Was he as awesomely cool in person?

    Oh, yes indeed. This was in 1976-he used to play at a place on the Upper West Side that was my neighborhood bar when I lived up there. Plus my roommate worked there as a waitress, and was dating a sax player, so I met a lot of the musicians through them.
