    The Corner Jazz Bash: What a great time, what a great turnout, what a great event! We do have some fine young musicians, don’t we? I hope this is only the first of many such gatherings. It was also nice to see people there who are not usually at school or band functions. Thanks for coming. (Wasn’t it fun?)
