You know, that fresh, passionate, new love and everything it brings? Where your eyes are brighter, your step is springier, and your heart is light? Where your dreams (whether they are alive in the day or night) are sugared with that sweet, sweet love? Colors are brighter, the breeze is softer, the sun is warmer?
I saw this love tonight in the form of the band, Jazz Musette, featuring our very own Lorraine Hart, blogger mama and writer wonderful. That passion for music, performing, and the love shown amongst the band members was totally fresh love, no kidding, as described above. With pure passion observed, it was a delight to see and experience their music and harmonies. It was my maiden voyage at 6th Avenue's Jazzbones, too, on Sunday, June 29th and with Mom and my little girl, Erin, in tow, it made it all the more special.
Jazz Musette played a lively and inspired set to benefit the Tacoma Waldorf School. Families and other patrons swayed to the music, enjoyed the food and drink, and laughed at the comedic antics of the wonderful Ms. Hart. Mom, Erin, and I sang along with some Jazz Musette originals (brilliant, let's hear it for "Coyote!") and old classics (our faves were a little Van Morrison and Leonard Cohen). I was THRILLED when my pal Lorraine dedicated a song for me! Wahoo! It rocked the house, I was practically crying and laughing at the same time. Love, love, love!
The band was great, but it was extra special to hear Lorraine and her daughter, Anna sing so beautifully. Those gals can SING! And Lorraine has the hips, gyrations, and dance moves of someone 1/3 of her age. And I am completely serious. Lorraine can out dance me any day of the week.
And my extra treat? I got to visit with fellow AWESOME and WONDERFUL blogger Mizu and her husband who attended. Cool!
Wanna see a great band with passion and a lot of "HART?" Check out the Jazz Musette website and catch a gig! Hey, I'll make it easy for you--click HERE. It will be worth it, trust me!
Thanks gang! So, how do I sign up (or start!) the fan club?
