Why this dog looks a little sad . . .

 

The reason? This handsome dog will be missing owner Bob Sneider, the hardest-working jazz guitarist during The Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival.  He (Bob) hosts jam sessions every night with his Trio, among other things.  I caught up with Bob on the interwebs.

With the Jazz Festival here again, this must be a crazy and fulfilling time for you.  How do you prepare for those late night jam sessions?

 There is no preparing for the jam sessions. Years of practicing and developing a repertoire of several hundred songs and flexibility to play them in other keys / tempos helps. Physically, I am a gym rat. I go to the gym every day during the fest. Swim and cardio vascular stuff. That helps with endurance. Being mentally alert and thinking about planning the sets and working the list of sitters-in is key. I do not drink at all — just water and coffee.
