Jazz in the City

I attended the meeting of the Baguio Knitting Circle aka Baguio Writer's Group and we met as per Councilor Richard Carino's request in a place where there is a piano. We met at Overtones along Assumption Rd. It was a dangerous neighborhood because there is a bar in the other side of the building which serves Red Horse. But Overtones was a nive place. In fact, it looks like a colonial house with chandeliers and many sofas. It is a jazz bar owned by professionals. You'd be surprised how many Baguio professionals can play jazz. Richard plays here on weekends. He's the pianoman. Then there's Architect Jong Abubo whom Luchie calls Chuck Manjonie because he wields a mean sax. There's Egay the longganisa maker who is the best bassist in town daw. There's Dr. Bareng also on sax. I heard Comelec Commish Brawner also plays with his sax regularly. Straight. No Viagra. Etc. Anyway, we had a meeting. Richard came late. Birthday girl Babeth already went home. Padma went home na rin but not before texting Baboo that we be careful because a hurled Red Horse bottle missed her by inches as she was walking to her car! We stayed for a few minutes as Richard and Company (why not call yourself the Richard's Smirk) played our request. Take Five and Summertime. Thanks to Richard and Baboo for reminding us that it's summer back in the US and typhoon in the Phils. Happy birthday again to Babeth.
