So, riding my bike home from class last night, I was lucky enough to catch a big band performing in Sarah Roosevelt Park. They had drums, trumpet, alto sax, tuba, guitar and maybe a couple other musicians (great reporting, right?). They were performing these sorta Django-inspired syncopations and rhythms. Great stuff, especially the trumpet, but then again I'm biased. The sun had just set and I was sadly caught without a tripod, so this is the best I can do.
Things like this are what New York is all about. Happy Fourth of July!
