Summary: After nearly a decade, a dying musician meets his favorite student again, but finds he can only connect again through music.

This short story by Joe Bunting features the life of the great jazz trumpeter Clifford Brown, who died tragically far too young, and is about the power of music to connect us despite race, generation, and even death.


My thoughts

This is a very powerful, emotional and moving short story.  Sad, yet, at the same time, hopeful.  I enjoyed it and hope to read more from this author in the future.
