Jazz in New York

Beautiful picture.
Love the atmosphere.
Playin' saxophone on a sunny afternoon at the Hudson River.
By the way, did you know jazz isn't as sweet as it seems?
Many jazzmusicians died because of drugsabuse.
Life on the road was hard, so it was the only way to hold on.
But, the good thing is, that a lot of jazzmusicians detoxed again.
Billie Holiday, Ray Charles, Miles Davis (on his own), James Brown, etc.
Well, one thing is for sure: New York is, next to New Orleans, the jazziest city you can imagine ;)

My dad, my mom and me, two years ago, in front of the Blue Note, a famous jazz club in NYC.
