Celebrating a Year

1.27.16And what are these crazy fuzzy buds doing out on the trees so early? Did they miss the weather memo? Spring seems to be trying to worm its way in every month of  our odd winter. After class I get a text from a percussionist friend in NYC, who I have played and recorded with, telling me that we have lost our friend, the brilliant saxophonist Vinicius Dorin. His music was so magnificent, and he was such a lovely person, barely in his 50s– how can this be? There is too much loss. I always thrill to hear his solos on my CD “Meu Bandolim,” but his playing was usually on a far bigger stage than my living room. He was “um dos maiores improvisadores da música brasileira”. Here’s a link to his playing, with the Hermeto Pascoal group, only a year ago. RIP, my friend.

  1. His music was indeed brilliant…another sad loss in the world.
