So, the guy with the reed. It's not Evan. And when Mark starts in with what looks to be a recorder, and the melodies take on the Jewish inflection, again, I think Zorn; but where is a yarmulke and where are the tzit-tzit, or maybe I am behind the times and he went Episcopalian.

It's got to be Zorn.

This video at least temporarily has pulled me out of a deep local weather-related - so like not a Tsunami - funk of the first order.


But, pleeze, tell me who is the guy on the reed instrument.

I am watching right now. Mark and Rob are hysterical. I am trying to guess the guy on the reed instrument. Could be John Zorn with a facelift. Now a guy with a flute and a whole bunch kids.

This is terrific, fantastic!!

So, I can watch it. But if you take it down, then it's gone.

So, it would be better if it were a download.

I mean, I can record it. In fact I did record it. So, I will have it. It's not great, but it's not nothing.

A download would hurt no one, and it would add to the value of WQXR.
