“Quote Note”
“If you don’t know where you are going, you’ll end up someplace else.” by Yogi Berra

WOW – I have really had a great week.

It all started last Friday, November 2nd, with the “If Jazz Was a Color” exhibition of jazz quilted textile collages by Jacquelyn Hughes Mooney in the Changing Gallery at the American Jazz Museum. Along with the visual treat of Jacquelyn’s work was the audio treat of hearing her recite her original poetry and the music provided by Dennis Winslett on sax, John Brewer on keyboard, Tyrone Clark on bass and drummer Brandon Draper. All of this accompanied by a tasty table of hors d’oeuvres. The exhibit runs through January 6th , so get down to 18th & Vine and catch it – oh, the art works are for sale and Jacquelyn has volunteered to donate a portion of her proceeds to the American Jazz Museum.
