chick corea + gary burton

This post is long-overdue! It is the busy time at work/school and in the arts community now, so my time for leisure has been limited the last couple of weeks. I think almost every night after my FT job I’ve had a rehearsal, concert, meeting, work for my PT job, or other random stuff that needs to get done. October shows no signs of slowing down, either!

Despite my busy schedule, last weekend I was finally able to review another concert. I heard legendary jazz pianist Chick Corea and vibraphonist Gary Burton perform at the Gem Theater, to open the American Jazz Museum’s 2012–13 Jammin’ at the Gem Series. Harlem String Quartet joined the duo on the second half of the concert. They were all fantastic! It was an uplifting, relaxing evening of great music. I am so lucky to have the opportunity to see artists like this through KCMetropolis.org.

I have been trying to keep up with the Banned Books Week posts, and those I’ve read so far are insightful, funny, and thought provoking. I understand why, but it still amazes me that people have tried to ban such powerful and important works of literature. I’m almost finished with Tim O’Brien’s The Things They Carried, and my post will be up on Saturday!
