Chicago

Just when I think there’s nothing special about where I live…

Our nice house in the suburbs lulls one into a false sense of blah. Big box grocery, shiny chain gas stations, drive here, drive there, no where in particular. Then you remember that you live one thirty minute drive from a totally different world that’s not available to 95% of the midwest. Chicago.
Drive we did for dinner at the Ethiopian Diamond with african beer and live music provided by Kelan Phil Cohran, a Chicago legend and one time member of Sun Ra’s band. Kelan played harp, trumpet, french horn, keyboards… After an excellent meal and service we traveled south down Broadway to Green Mill Cocktail Lounge for two sets of excellent Jazz by Bob long and friends. A wonderful evening.
Good food, good music. Worlds away…
