Minimum Wage duty calls. Today, I must write like crazy to finish what one might amusingly describe as a paying job. I also have to figure out what I’m going to say tonight when I introduce a performance of the Duke Ellington-Billy Strayhorn “Nutcracker Suite” at The Seasons. It will be played by a band from the Central Washington University music department, a good one. The likelihood of further posting in the next thirty-six hours is small, but not nonexistent. You might visit the archives (right column) and my talented artsjournal.com neighbors (farther down the right column).
