Music, Arts and Education...
At one time, playing an instrument led to a question "which one"? Today, it seems the only instruments being played are guitars, drums and perhaps a base. Sometimes a woodwind instrument like the one this talented musician was playing with a jazz quartet.
I'm going to rant a bit here. Jazz and Pop standards are uniquely American. Tunes from that period of time are known around the world. Yet today, we hear so called singers and musicians who sound all a like with the same style and sound. What happened to individuality, creativity and music.
School budgets keep being mis-spent and the arts keep on being taken away.
Sorry to say, it looks like the continual decline of America - the standards our predecessors left us are being lowered every day.
