There were lots of great programs, many conflicting with other great programs. And no matter what time I get there it's not early enough. An unexpected treat this time was sitting in on a workshop called "Accompaniment and Arrangements" with Jerry Epstein. That man is a warehouse of musical knowledge and ran a most fascinating session touching on unusual harmonies and new angles for accompaniment.

I also caught a few very nice minutes of Women's Voices, the last 2 songs by Too Blue, the last half of Nzinga's Daughters - hey Jerry, is Ruth related to the singer who wore chartreuse/purple? Looked like family to me - and some of the Gospel in Black and White. All most enjoyable.

The facilities are pretty nice. Nothing like the high school I went to back in the stone age. More spread out than Newtown but certainly adequate and very convenient for me. Congratulations to the folks who worked so hard to make NOMAD so much fun once again.
