Dubious Achievement (or just when did we become Detroit)

Friday, November 20th, 2015

We saw this article by Alana Semuels, which talks about how Syracuse is gaining a national reputation for poverty. On a more positive note, the article contained some great vintage photography by Richard Breland, and recognized the historic achievement of Manny Breland.

King, Solazzo and Horrace at Hancock Airport.

King, Solazzo and Horrace at Hancock International Airport.

Enough is enough. We are going to stop limiting Bill Horrace by calling him a jazz guy. Of course, he can go there, but his musical abilities and ambitions go well beyond the J-word. We’ve seen him (along with a variety of his band incarnations) play pop, folk and soul everywhere from a moving bus to storefronts downtown. In his latest cultural creation, Horrace’s band was the initial guest at the Hancock Airport Music Series, which took place this morning.  He was joined by Dave Solazzo on keys and Kinyatta King on drums.

The pleasant tones seemed to put everyone in a good mood, and had airport staff and travelers bopping through the terminal.  The tall, peaked ceiling provided surprisingly wonderful acoustics.

We are not sure where he’ll resurface next, but hopefully Horrace will someday lay down his version of some aquaboogie on a boat (or along the shores of Onondaga Lake).
