I have lived in the Falls since 1968. My great-great grandfather was one of the village founders. I have served the community in multiple ways: Firefighter, various boards and commissions and for many years was president of the Falls Cable Access Corp. Currently I own, and am active in, a restaurant equipment manufacturing company.
Sadly, mainstream jazz seem to be declining right now. This artform has been widely appreciated by decades of Americans as our contribution to a unique music genre.
This is my favorite music. Freeform, expressive, plus a host of other unique descriptive adjectives, may give you a hint what this is all about. Sadly, in much of today's music, mindless strumming accompanied by outright aggression on instruments has wandered into the listeners spotlight.
To hear some real American jazz give this a try. Regina Carter, a jazz violin virtuoso from Detroit is performing in Brookfield next month at the Wilson Center. If you would like to experience music that is beautifully performed, and not inflicted on you, give this a try. I bought my tickets today.
Regina Carter Quintet
