This popular video of street music in New York features Jesse Scheinin the son of San Jose Mercury writer Richard Scheinin.
edit to add: if that link don’t go thru, there’s also this video:
I guess the kid is out there working it, such that he also ends up in a PBS film:
related story: Donny McCaslin has a new cd out this week. (the connection is that Donny is also a jazz sax guy in NYC from Santa Cruz…not to step on Jesse’s moment in the plastic)…
edit to add a minute later, not a New York minute, or a euphemistic hipster minute that means next week or next month but not never, but real minute, ok 2:00: for a real jazz Charles Ives kind of thing, play all three videos at the same time….
Jesse Scheinin is totally a candidate for ICOBOPA or something better down here….there should be an ICOBOPA of 20 sax players in different downtown locales.
