Hotel d'Orsay


Tonight I went to Brooklyn to listen to Andy Statman.
There were about forty people in the “performance space” of Barbès, a decent bar in Brooklyn.
The performance space was slightly bigger than my living room. Above the stage hung a neon sign that read “Hotel d’Orsay”.
Mr. Statman is a great mandolin player, but in all honesty 45 minutes of mandolin music a night is enough for me.
