Music is such an important part of my life. I'll listen to almost anything, from punk to world beats, hip-hop to classical, and everything in between.

I will happily see almost any act live. Live music ends up being a near-religious experience, or as close as I think an atheist can come.

I had the chance to see a world-renouned pianist play Gershwin's Rhapsody In Blue, an opportunity I happily took advantage of.

The thing for me about seeing live music is the pure joy musicians take in their work. This young pianist was clearly passionate, and thrilled to be doing what he is. I love watching that.

Add a lovely summer evening to the mix, and it is bliss. Bliss, I say.
