to ruminations about politics, world affairs, culture and whatever piques my interest—or ire.

New Orleans trumpeter Lionel Ferbos celebrated his 100th birthday at the Palm Court Jazz Cafe last Sunday (July 17, 2011). An incredible landmark by any measure, and another proof that jazz keeps you young. Congratulations, Lionel, and thanks for all the great music you have given us over nine decades!
