Re: “Sharp or Flat?

Although I don't draw the same conclusions about the jazz festival as Joseph Byrd, his view isn't entirely without merit as he's a pretty decent musician. Remember that it's an opinion piece and is subject to slant, just like the views expressed here. However, there's one correction that I need to clear up. Byrd referred to a silent movie group at the festival as a "pick-up band," and his use of the word is incorrect. A pick-up band is one that's thrown together from an ad hoc assortment of musicians who don't normally perform together. The Pastime Silent Movie Orchestra has had the same personnel for three years. Lastly, I think it would be ludicrous to mount a silent movie performance under those circumstances.
