Jay Harvey wrote a wonderful piece about last week’s Uncle Dan and Sophie Jam. It’s the best summation of the last show and our coming hiatus while Sophie has her baby.
Jay writes in part:
We’re always learning, but some people are lucky enough to encounter mentors early who put a special stamp upon what the learning process yields. Teachers in formal and informal situations alike point out the stepping stones toward individual success. Their teaching often reaches beyond their specialties, extending to wider horizons.The final session this season of “The Uncle Dan & Sophie Jam” at the Jazz Kitchen Wednesday night gave a free rein to such memories for host Sophie Faught, jazz saxophonist and composer; guest Steve Allee, pianist-composer-bandleader, and writer and co-host Dan Wakefield.
