Our hearts, and donations, go out to all those devastated by Sandy, in New York City, Long Island, New Jersey, and Connecticut. New Yorkers are a very special breed, no matter where they come from; and New York is a place we'll always call home, no matter where we're living.

Hang in there.

(The music: Home, 1944, with Jack Teagarden, trombone and vocal; Coleman Hawkins, tenor sax; Joe Thomas, trumpet; Hank D'Amico, clarinet; Herman Chittison, piano; Billy Taylor, bass; George Wettling, drums.)
