Tho’ the weather outside was frightful, the music inside was delightful. And like the US Postal Service, thru rain, sleet, snow and ice, the show was delivered. I made a humble effort to keep the festive music of Jibaro Jazz alive tonight before doing my show, hoping not to disappoint snow-bound host Ferdinand Montalvo’s avid listeners. I don’t know if I succeeded, but I had a blast. What we heard from 8:10 to 10:
