Last Friday night I got all Jazzed at the Fourth Annual Jazz Experience at the Quapaw Bath House in my hometown, Hot Springs, Arkansas. Jacqueline Beaumont – or Jacqui B. straight from Myrtle Beach, SC – joined the AJE Combo in a night of songs and stories for a mere $15.
To make the night even more palatable, there was free finger food courtesy of the Jazz Society members and a cash bar. About half the audience were Village people (folks living at Hot Springs Village, the largest private community in the U.S., not the singers of Y.M.C.A.). Being among the 5 youngest in attendance made me feel young. At intermission, I won a gorgeous Razorback glass birdbath (or whatever I want to use it for…) for which I turned down an offer of hard, cold cash. The U of A is my alma mater , football season is right around the corner and this new addition is a huge step up from my plastic pig snout. Woo Pig Sooie! Go hogs!!!
