I spent the weekend camped out at Helzberg Hall. I reviewed the esteemed and unparrelleled Bobby McFerrin on Friday night and “A Night of Tango” with the Bach Aria Soloists with special guests Héctor del Curto, Alon Yainaz and Jeff Harshbarger for The Kansas City Star.
That was a good way to spend a weekend.
Quote from a 1993 interview with McFerrin that could be extrapolated out to every event in life: “improvisation basically is simply the courage to move from one note to the next. That’s all it is.”
