MoMA Sculpture Garden

Fascinating music in really nice atmospheric surroundings of Museum of Modern Art Sculpture Garden, I was so glad to be able to get in (so many people had to stay behind the gates, unfortunately). Since some people found it a little too avant-garde, I finally ended up on an abandoned seat right in the front… 🙂 I especially loved Mark Helias’s bass playing so much – so musical, flawless technique… But anyway, I think this sort of thing, in a place like that – seems to be an exclusively New York style of event. I heard that the garden has a history of hosting jazz, since 1971  – so many great recordings have been done there, for instance, Sonny Rollins’s solo album of 1985.
