Equally at home with both high & low brow, elegant venues &
dive joints. And the dive joints are not for irony.
ALWAYS have a book in tow: history, bios, sociology, politics,
sports, memoirs, Shakespeare, some poetry, some fiction.
My musical universe is nothing if not vast. A few of the stars in
Bach, Ellington, Beethoven, Schubert, Kurt Weill, Brahms, Debussy,
Stephen Foster & Scott Joplin, The Duke & The Count, Bix
& Bing, Bird & Diz, Bill & Gil Evans, Jobim's sambas
& Piazzola's tangos. Plus Jango, Sinatra & Bennett, Dvorak,

Pops, Ray Charles, Miss Peggy Lee, Nat Cole, Dear Blossom. The
American Songbook royalty: Rodgers, Kern, Gershwin, Berlin, Porter,
Loesser ..... Also Bernstein & Sondheim. Nellie McCay!
Bluegrass makes me smile, and Merle Haggard, Waylon & Willie,
Hank Williams, Kitty Wells, & Johnny Cash are old Country
Western hard-drinking buddies from my blue collar days.
Also a serious fan of film scores (Hermann, both Bernsteins,
Steiner, Friedhoffer, Randy Newman's uncles, Franz Waxman,
Korngold, North, Tiomkin, Kapur, Webb, and more.)
Van Morrison, Beatles, Allman Bros, Sweet Baby James, Bobby Darin,
Clapton, Pink Floyd, Moody Blues, and more. Original and
distinctive musical voices.
Somewhat encyclopedic about classic films (can you spell
"Ouspenskaya"?) and appreciate any and all "honest" theater,
whether drama, comedy, musicals or musical comedy,.
Am a regular attendee of ballet & dance, the Met museum, the
NYHS and other art venues.
Grew up playing sports on the streets & playgrounds of Brooklyn
and still athletic. Have never been a fanatical fan, but I enjoy
baseball more than the other spectator sports and happy to explain
why if you are interested, but also enjoy football once the autumn
chill arrives. Very energetic and love the great outdoors.
Am a pretty good sous chef. Tend to eat healthy, mostly vegetarian.
As for cuisines, can't think of a single ethnic one I don't enjoy.
