For a small portion of humanity the Blue Note is an icon, a temple and a distant dream. Each time that I come to New York I try to attend a concert – and usually I succeed. I never regretted the time or effort or money. The Blue Note is a narrow building downtown Manhattan, remarkable from the outside because the awning has the form of a piano. Rather narrow, it is deep and it can host a surprisingly vast audience. This evening a big band paid a tribute to Duke Ellington and Ella Fitzgerald and I dare to say that it was a wonderful performance. Which I cannot describe. Poor you.
