Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

Shadow Shot Sunday - 1/24

Sleek golden-throated
Horn, sound of liquid sunlight
Casts silver shadow.

This is not poetic license.  The bell section is sterling silver, with a 24 carat gold wash inside.

For a view of the golden throat, see here.

O jazz trombonist,
can you really bear to let
your horn just stand there?

wanderlust said...

Beautiful photo. Just right. The shadow is just right, the sheet music is just right. And seeing a trombone ALWAYS makes me happy! Now pick that horn up and blow, my friend!

Ha! You gotta love MMT! Good one.

This is a most interesting blog space. I will have to visit more often, if you please. :-)

Thanks for the visits and kind words.

You made me give in to peer pressure. I spent some time playing blues in Bb this afternoon. For some reason, it always wants to drift into F . . .

Oh! feel hearing the trombone playing with my dad's sax and niece piano. Can be the best relaxation for the evening.

Love your romantic shot.

Happy SS...
