I am a jazz musician by trade, which, like almost all performing artists, is a rather impractical profession for a pandemic. Nonetheless, I’ve been very happy to have a few recent outdoor, socially-distanced, mask-wearing opportunities to make music again, and even with other real live humans, for other live humans!
Since March, there’s been plenty of time to practice, make music solo, and even do things like mix & master albums—all of which I have done. But especially with jazz, there’s nothing like playing together and creating a joint work of art in the moment.
Yesterday I played in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park with a jazz quartet, wearing the ‘pandemic semi-formal’ seen in this first pic. On the way home, past sunset, I gave my new camera a low-light test; though I got it primarily for macro, it’s obviously quite superior to what my phone could capture.
Today, Saturday, I’ll be playing again, but in Central Park, from 4–5:15PMish; if you’re interested, see details at GordonAuMusic.com.
