The sounds of Clifford Brown and Max Roach fill the air with my favorite song this time of year, "Spring Joy". To me it's as seasonal as Vince Guaraldi in December. "Spring Joy" came to my head one exquisite day in May, year 1995. I was walking down a steep hill in Clifton, Cincinnati, air full of catalpa bloom and pink haze sunset, unsteady on my feet from the glories around me. I was going to my friend Rob Mulhauser's house for some good vegetarian dinner, and when I got there I was bursting with joy over the beauty going on and Rob casually puts on this song and I was just swept away with how anyone could cature my rapture so well.
