Virgo: The greatest jazz sign

Posted by keithosaunders on August 27, 2015

Continuing birthday week festivities. I had one of the better birthdays.  I hosted a gig at a bar in the Haight called Club Deluxe.  Earlier that day I had posted about it being my birthday and a lot of musicians ended up coming out, celebrating, and sitting in.  The trumpet and trombone player even brought out an ice cream cake while playing Happy birthday.  Talk about feats of coordination!  It was a great time and a reminder that I am truly blessed to be able to play this great music and have such friends and family.

Virgo is a great sign for jazz master’s birthdays. Wayne Shorter was born on my birthday, the 25th. Today is Lester Young’s birthday. If you were born on August 29th you share the day with none other than Charlie Parker!  August 30th is Kenny Dorham, September 2nd is Horace Silver and September 7th is Sonny Rollins!
