'E-Tunes' - a New York Subway Moment
A long and productive afternoon, evening, and night of subway riding and shooting
was drawing to a contented end, as the clean and bright E Train I was riding from
Jamaica Center in Queens tunneled into Midtown Manhattan.
I must have been looking at my photos when a musical tone
sounded that was clearly not the alerter before train messages.
Looking up from my cameras, I saw this enterprising young musician launch into
Paul Desmond’s jazz classic “Take Five.” He followed it with Henry Mancini’s playfully
infectious "Pink Panther,” which I noticed had most of my fellow passengers smiling.
Yes, the photog laid a bill in his clarinet case…

I've heard him two times in Berlin,
- long time ago ..
but sometimes I meet a streetmusician too,
who plays this " Take Five "-melody ..
in an underground station or a shopping mall corner .
But I hope, that this covid-Pandemie will end
soon - I miss the original jazzclub atmosphere .. ;-(((
have a nice day too
at the ' big apple ' ,
