We begin the new year, 2023, with renewed hope. The year 2023 will mark the first full year of a true post-pandemic world. We look forward to more exciting developments in the jazz scene and the overall music scene for Buffalo.
After a year of a steady stream of tragedies in 2022, we can hope and pray that this will not be the case in 2023. Our prayers are with Damar Hamlin for a full recovery and for the five children and their families who perished in a fire this past week.
In Bill O’Connell’s superb album “A Change Is Gonna Come” (one of our 25 favorite albums in 2022), the song that is apropos for our city is “Enough is Enough.” Yes, enough is enough.
