Mulligan Meets Monk
If I could to go back, I would change a few things about my childhood. First, I would have forced my parents to make me learn seven languages, including Swiss, German, and Danish (a girl needs options). Second, I would have learned how to play an instrument — any instrument. This heartfelt wish is routinely triggered when I come upon pictures like the one seen above, featuring saxophonist Gerry Mulligan and pianist Thelonious Monk hammering out their jazz album Mulligan Meets Monk back in 1957. Now, I know it’s never really too late to teach an old dog new tricks, but I think I’ll be forced to incorporate musical instruments into my life solely as apartment decorations. If you, like me, suffer from similar regrets, check out the litany of musical instruments on eBay (standup basses, saxophones, pianos). They’ve got everything you need to start that jazz band you’ve been dreaming about, or, you know, decorate with.
