I’ve already posted this cheering bouquet of balloons, and I’m making my first trip to Fresno for “the sounds of Mardi Gras” early next month. And not simply in hope of finding balloons.
and a very hot MONA LISA from a 2010 performance by the New El Dorado Jazz Band co-led by Hal Smith and Clint Baker, with Marc Caparone, Howard Miyata, Mike Baird, Carl Sonny Leyland, Katie Cavera, and Georgia Korba. Not everyone in this band will be at the 2019 festival, but their music is preserved for us thanks to RaeAnn Berry:
I look forward to the 2019 banquet of good sounds. For details, visit the festival’s website and their Facebook page. But don’t take so long looking for the right color highlighter that this hot weekend passes you by.
