A very fine performance at Bird & Beckett Books in San Francisco by Francis Wong's Special Quartet. We had a good turnout considering it was a holiday afternoon. The weather was grand. This is a new ensemble, though we have all played with each other in different situations. Francis Wong - sax, Karl Alfonso Defensor Evangelista - guitar, Deszon X. Claiborne - drums and yours truly on tuba. And special guest on vocals, Helen Palma. You can view the concert via Bird & Beckett's youtube channel.
Francis and I went to H Mart for a repast of oxtail soup, Korean style.
I left early the next morning because I wanted to stop in Taft again for lunch. This time at Roots, a BBQ house. The fare was quite fine.
