Summer Soiree

Happy Summer!

Johnny Mac, former big band leader who played with Herbie Hancock, welcomed summer to Lynchburg (make that Madison Heights), Virginia, at a "Summer Soiree" held at Winridge Manor (http://www.winridgemanor.com/).  I went along for the munchies.
"Pretty hot, huh?" says Virginia.

Yes, even after a giant gray cloud descended and we moved under cover.  We alternated short classical numbers with jazz standards.

Would you believe this fellow crashed the party?
"What brand is he smoking?" asks Virginia, as if she cares.  Click on the photo to enlarge it and, if your eyes are better than mine, you might know the answer.

    I stole the photo of Fred...hope you don't mind. He was so happy to sit and talk to you! Thanks for your hospitality.

  2. He seemed very relaxed and happy, cough, cough.
