What instrument does Steve Sando play?
I don’t know if Steve is a secret hot pianist, but I do know that he’s responsible for the most tasty heirloom beans on the planet — ones the Beloved and I ate last night. Steve (whose music library starts at five thousand CDs, a man after my own heart) is the Man In Charge of Rancho Gordo, from which delicious beans and grains come. (His site is www.ranchogordo.com.) And Steve also adores singers, both well-known and obscure: last night we spoke of Jack Teagarden, Fats Waller, and Alice Faye.
So these two pieces of paper are in honor of our pal and provider of good things Steve Sando:
That’s Annette Hanshaw!
And Connee Boswell in 1966. Just remember, jazz fans, it is just as easy to have something delicious to eat as it is to dine on something unsatisfying. (An unsolicited testimonial from a deeply satisfied consumer.)
