    Better pray for some actual jazz music.

    From the line-up, the captivating evening of Jazz and spoken word, will have little in common with jazz.

    Jeremy Vanterpool, the jazz saxophonist from the British Virgin Islands, is but a shadow of his departed compatriot saxophonist, Roderick Borde. Fifty years ago, while at anchor in the BVI, I heard Roderick playing his theme tune, “Tangerine”. He had me walking on water.

    In those days, Roderick played with a group called “The Endangered Species”. The name is all the more apt today considering the current watering down of jazz.
