don't tell anyone but the leaves are getting rather pretty around here. my dear friend sonia is playing at club passim on wednesday october 3. there was some talk of me sitting in on a tune, but whatever happens, catch her show wherever you live; she's touring and celebrating her newest recording called "tango," which is an amazing project. also, she will be visiting one of my classes at berklee, so i will get to hear her music a lot this week. i recommend it to you, too, and i also recommend being happy. it's very cool.
