I am in Ottawa this evening with my oldest son to watch Chick Corea, Jean-Luc Ponty, Frank Gambale, Stanley Clarke and Lenny White. I say watch deliberately because I’m not sure how much I will actually hear. This is week three for the ear infection with seemingly little progress. The ear continues to be plugged although nowhere near as painful as when it first shut down.
It is a beautiful evening in Ottawa and I am sure that the concert will be amazing. These players are heroes to me and I am looking forward to at least seeing them even if I cannot share in the joy of listening to their art.
