Mar 30, 2008 Return to Forever
As I have said before, jazz is improvisation, spontaneity, feeling, being in the moment, tight interaction, entertainment, pushing the limits of excellence, creativity, expanding into new frontiers, fun, inspiration, and discovery. That also is what my criminal defense work is about, albeit with frustration frequently challenging the fun part. Moreover, my countless live trumpet performances with various bands helped make it more natural for me to perform before audiences in the courtroom.
Magic consistently happened with the trailblazing 1970’s Return to Forever lineup of Stanley Clark, Chick Corea, Al Dimeola, and Lenny White. Magic comes again with this summer’s RTF reunion tour. I already have my tickets for the August 4 concert at Maryland Merriwether Post Pavillion. If you will be at one of their concerts, please let me know about your experience. Jon Katz
