I forgot to complete and post this on Tuesday

Mardi Gras Lunchtime Concert:  I was looking forward to hearing some good Dixieland music at the Church of the Epiphany today, but no such luck.  The band had piano, drums, bass and clarinet.  Where were the coronets and the trombones?  And how can Hoagy Carmichael be considered Dixieland, no matter how it is played?

Sarajevo:  I read through Edward Serotta’s Survival in Sarajevo, which has some spectacular photographs and talks about the role of the Jewish community during the Balkan wars of the 1990s.  The book also gives a nice history of the Jews of the former Yugoslavia, from the 16th century to and through World War II.
