    Here in Telluride for the jazz festival. I just saw The Crescent Super Band consisting of musicians between the ages of 15 and 18. I will just say this; the future of jazz is looking really good.

    The bass player was a ninth grader and moved seamlessly from electric to DB and from big band to Stevie Wonder. Outstanding feel and technique. He was featured prominently throughout one hour+ set.

    The drummers (there were three) were very proficient and all of the solos from every section were mature and well played.

    The guitar player was so happy to be playing. It was infectious.

    What a great opener to the festival.

    I wish they would have had a jazz studies program when I was in high school.

    Glad you're having a good time.
    I live about an hour away from Telluride but don't go there much,
    too expensive for me.

    However, We did ride the gondola last month.
    I suggest that you do it - great views of the town!
