1890 — The Birth of Jazz
In 1890’s America, New Orleans was one of the most cosmopolitan cities. An important port on The Gulf of Mexico, at the Mississippi Delta, New Orleans attracted musicians from around the world, from anywhere ships embarked on voyages to the New World. Those choosing the original path, into the Caribbean, Haiti, Cuba, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, the Antilles, and the Bahamas. New Orleans streets and clubs filled with the sound of anything from brass bands, Italian operas, Caribbean rhythms, and minstrel shows, to the lonely bluesmen who also added to the city’s richly diverse musical culture.

1890 — VooDoo Calling
African-American musicians (Jelly Roll Morton, Buddy Bolden, Sydney Bichet) include all the New Orleans styles and sounds,  and created  the first wholly American, Musical Art Form. By the end of the 19th Century, the new, (All) American Music was called JAZZ.

The Girl Who Got Away
August 24, 1992 — Just a few hours after Hurricane Andrew ravaged South Miami, in West Palm Beach, I woke to a clear blue sky and a gentle tropical breeze. Different than expected, even 25 miles north of the storm’s most destructive fury, earlier that evening, just past midnight, the howl of a sustained 140-mph wind was deafening. Now, standing in the front yard of the small duplex, across Lake Worth (Intracoastal Waterway), with a clear view of the Mar A Lago tower, I was anxious to get back to my North Miami Beach (Bal Harbor) apartment, and see what damage Andrew had done.
