Getting Married

Friday, September 9th, 2016
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.Love never fails.”

I Corinthians 13:4-8

Week in Review

Here’s a sample from a tune played during the Jazz in the City (Westside) show on Thursday, featuring Elan Trotman and Brian Simpson. Their put together band included Rochester musicians Corey Owens (drums) and Carlton Wilcox (bass). They are featured on the clip.

Their synergy was excellent and the overflowing crowd on Park Street showed them much love.

We saw Wilcox when he played here with Frank McComb, and Owens when he played with Danielle Ponder.
