Conversations with Calliope- Time Out for Jazz


JOE: Good morning Calliope.
CALLIOPE: Good morning Joe. How are you today?
JOE: A little weary.
CALLIOPE: On what account?
JOE: Last night's fairly late night at the Rochester International Jazz Festival.
CALLIOPE: Sounds like fun.
JOE: It certainly was. This was our second visit to the festival.
CALLIOPE: What did you see?
JOE: First were several local jazz groups on one of the free stages.
CALLIOPE: And then?
JOE; Soul Stew, a group from Toronto which lived up to its billing as a top notch soul combo.
CALLIOPE: Was that it?
JOE: No. We tore ourselves away to see Bonerama in the big tent, a trombone group from New Orleans we had seen before. They also put on a great show.
CALLIOPE: Do you plan to give up writing and spend your time watching music performances?
JOE: Don't be jealous of your sister muses. I'm not abandoning you but am enjoying some time with other creative pursuits. I'm back to my writing work today. Talk with you tomorrow.
