Around Town

Michael G Nastos celebrated his 70th Birthday with an open bash at his retirement home April 3. It was a happy affair with lots of music and old friends congregating. Pictured here are some of the main players: drummer Bob Sweet’s Trio with bassist Kurt Krahnke and various horn players: trumpeter Ingrid Racine, tenorist Paul VornHagen. Nastos contributed with some of his jazz-oriented poetry in the style of the Beats.
