And so somehow I found myself going to watch that jazz and beyond band Funk Monk play in the subway yesterday as part of the Music Under New York MTA MUNY Arts For Transit Program subway music series. And that band rocked. And I thought to take along that digital camera to take a digital photo of them playing to post on this blog entry, and for some reason that didn't happen. And so there was a flyer there also for the Music Under New York presents Jazz Fest November 17-21, Grand Central, Mezzanine that read something like as follows:
Music Under New York (MUNY) presents five days of MUNY musicians and their bands in celebration of America's original art form: Jazz.
etc; etc; etc; and so on and so on and so on...,
MUN is one of the many visual and performing art programs administered by the MTA Arts for Transit office. For 20 years MUNY has provided customers in the transit system with daily music performances. And their schedule of performers for this event was/is/are Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, New York Express led by Andy Friedberg, Tin Pan led by Jesse Selengut, Neffe Kragh Muller, Patrick Wolff Quartet, Artist Collective led by Tom Bruno, New Perspectives led by Henry P. Warner, Afro Andes led by Julian Avalos, Yaz Band led by Yasayuki Takagi, Alex Lodico Ensemble and Welf's Funk Monk.
Have a great subway music day.
