Jazz has a way of trickling into your soul, only to explode with all the surprise of timeless beauty, romance and true elegance! Most people do not realize the wealth of culture in Pittsburgh thanks to the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust! They work feverishly to provide our community with art, theater and amazing music. Saturday night was Sean Jones, which might be one of the best trumpet players in the world and brought the house down with Shades of Love. A sensual, delightful mix of downtempo tracks building to energetic crescendo’s. Since this show, I have been listening to a perpetual state of Jazz, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Ellington, Arve Henrikson, its been sheer bliss. I really love this job for the places and people it brings into my life! Special thanks to Janis, Tracy and Dinah for having me and your hard work to organize these events. Happy Valentines Day!!!
