New York trip – Paul Van Ross jamming @ Washington Sq park

Ok. So I’m in NYC for some further study on saxophone, flute and all things music. It’s 4th of July….. Where do you go…..on a 35 degree day…..
Washington square park of course. Where some of the local musicians are busking/jamming playing Coltrane tunes.

Sax player sound just like Trane in this chordless trio.
After their set, they start packing up (after being here for 4 hours already) …. The interchange bass player turns up late, keen to play. So the sax player has to go, but invites me to grab my horn.

So, myself and Seth Myers (bass) do an hour an half set of standards to a very appreciative audience in the sweltering heat.

What a wonderful start to my stay in NYC, soaking up all things music.

Thanks New York
