Jazz Standard with Steve Wilson, The Sirius String Quartet, and my long lost cousin
I met my cousin, Donald Hunt, for the first time yesterday at the Jazz Standard Club in Manhattan. He performed there with the Jazz Standard Youth Orchestra, the Sirius String Quartet, and saxophonist Steve Wilson. The Jazz Standard provides an opportunity for young musicians to play every Sunday helping spread jazz to the youth(I played for the JSYO for two years). It was nice to meet a relative that is heading in a positive direction, especially a relative around my age. He's 18 and will be studying Jazz at the Berklee College of Music in Boston. He plays cello and along with music is a talented basketball player. Be on the look out for my cousin!
