Sketches: Sagapool at Stewart Hall

I almost missed this Thursday evening, thinking all the summer park concerts weren’t starting until next week. It would have upset me to have missed Sagapool, a band I happened upon last summer at the Montreal Jazz Festival. They were going by the name “Manouche” then, and true to that name, play a form of music that sounds like gypsy jazz a la Django Reinhardt. It’s like listening to circus/carnival music (fun and energetic), though they did one slow piece that sounded a bit like a carny dirge. And as I try to do, I sketched a little as I listened. I also brought my video recorder and made a little clip of the event, below.

    What a breath of fresh, cool air. It was 103 degrees here yesterday–another record-setter. Glad to see you still like music :-) I’ll take a photo of the drawing you did of David, Jerry and Steve…now that I know where my camera is!
