First Sunshine In Five Weeks!

My dear jazz family,
Wanted to share the attached picture with you that was taken on Friday afternoon, which turned out to be a better day than most on the mending road…

Got to get out and breathe my first fresh air and enjoy first sunshine in five weeks. WBGO’s Sheila Anderson wheeled me out to catch the very last warm rays on that gorgeous early Spring day and snapped the attached picture. There just might be angels of swing…

Brighter moments, Todd

    Wishing an uneventful recovery. I just discovered Rahsaan Roland Kirk
    ‘s ‘”If I Loved You” in 1973 where you played the synthesizer. It would fun to hear you play at Dizzy’s. All The Best, Nancy Barell

    Dear Mr. Barkan,
    I am very happy to hear that you are mending so well and I hope you are still experiencing sunshine as much as possible.
    I am one of the countless people who greatly enjoyed The Keystone Korner in SF. Now that I have been back in New York I have been so pleased to once again enjoy your esteemed programming at Dizzy’s Club Coca Cola.
    I do not know as of this posting if you are back at Dizzy’s but I do hope if not you will so soon.
    With kindest regards- Anukampa Lisa Walden

    Mr. Barkan,

    I found your name on the back of a Jimmy Scott CD, and surprised to see a name so similar to my son’s teacher, decided to see what you look like.

    Glad I did. You look like you relish sunshine. Like you glimpse the depth of the story behind eyes that dart away, as well as those which hold yours in mutual appreciation of the sunlight in a smile.

    May your recovery be gentle, strong and true.

    -Kim O.
