The weather this year was about as perfect as you can get. This is one of my favorite days because Wynton does his Q & A and it's always inspiring despite getting the same question a lot every year and multiple times in multiple ways usually revolving around either how can you move the music forward when only studying the past or finding your own voice! LOL Wynton is so good at this stuff. Fun time in Central Park. We had a great time with our mentor Paul Nedzela. The biggest reason I love this day is it is like an incredible family reunion. I know kids and directors from different schools, my J@LC family, Hammer, etc... I love the fellowship and this is the day with no competition. Love it!!!
