Just got back from the way-less-than-famous Macon Jazz Festival in Burgundy. We listened mostly to the Gilad Hekselman Trio, led by a pretty cool Israeli guitarist recently from New York who's got a kind of a bluesier Pat Metheney sound, if that makes sense to you. They might make it.

There was a remarkably shitty little rock group playing simultaneously nearby, doing mostly Pearl Jam covers, the kind of group that would be OK to listen to in your friend's basement when you're really stoned but who should never, ever get a professional gig.

But the really cool part: listening to them on a nice outdoor stage, a few meters from the Saône River, under a half moon bright enough to glow clearly through some hazy cloud cover and run a long reflection over the water. THAT makes everything sound just so much better.

I just might even enjoy Justin Bieber in THAT setting!

Ok, maybe not...
