String of Pearls


When I tell friends and colleagues that I'm going to a jazz event they often recoil in horror. I suspect they envision sedate scenes similar to the one depicted in the embedded video. They're right more often than I'd care to admit. My surroundings occasionally resemble a suburban retirement community. Just as often, however, I'm in the middle of scenarios like this or this. As Terence Blanchard notes in the trailer for "Icons Among Us", a quiet revolution is afoot.

There are so many things one could say about this video. *cringe*

Aging is already scary enough. The thought of being tormented by a Taylor Swift tribute act at an assisted living home a few decades from now is terrifying.
