THE GRAND FLORIDIAN, JAZZ HOT SPOT?

Disney 2My colleague and friend Dolores DeManuel-Kraus sent in this dispatch:

“These are photos from last month.  I was at the Grand Floridian, one of the resorts in Disney World–when I found out that they had a orchestra playing jazz and standards I wanted to show George and took a couple of shots.  I was there having afternoon tea with my sister and Elena, while George was at the Davy Crockett Trading Post eating fried chicken and barbecue with Anthony, my brother-in-law, and nephews.”

The Grand Floridian Society Orchestra appears in http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oBkQriENENQ.  Their jazz might not convince everyone, but the photographs Dolores took are certainly evocative:
