Fat Tuesday at the Foundation
A nice man at the Mutual Musicians Foundation is constantly filming the musicians and the audience. Sometimes brief samples are screened during breaks in the music. The guy must have well over a thousand hours of documentation. I want to ask him what he intends to do with his work but he's always busy filming. Incredibly, only eight videos with the tag "Mutual Musicans Foundation" are posted at YouTube. And five of them are from last week's Fat Tuesday party. While this disorienting clip makes me feel as if I need to call a cab, it benefits from featuring the great drummer Steve "Duck" McLane and by offering a brief glimpse of the saintly Betty Crow.
