VIDEO: West Seattle saxophonist serenades neighbors

Thanks to Richard in the Fairmount Park area for the video! He explains: “We are blessed in the Fairmount Park neighborhood to have an acclaimed Jazz saxophonist as one of our neighbors. Next Monday he was scheduled to play at Jazz Alley but alas we all know that is not going to happen now. Anton S. is his name and he has decided to play each night at 6 pm a solo for anyone to listen and appreciate from a safe distance, like on my porch. I hope … other muscians in other neighborhoods might be inspired to do same. Community, neighbors, safe personal distancing … We can beat this virus!

     So awesome…all of it! Here in North Admiral we had lots of shouting, clapping, singing, words of encouragement, pots clanging, salutations to neighbors and words of thanks to our beloved Engine 29.We should probably make this a weekly habit!

    That is great!! I played sax in my Fauntleroy neighborhood the other night as well. Not nearly as good, but this is so so awesome. Will come listen one night!

Sorry, comment time is over.
