Stolen Moments in Golden Gate Park

Stolen Moments

There are few melodies as beautiful as “Stolen Moments” from Oliver Nelson's seminal Blues and the Abstract Truth. These gentlemen were jamming under a bridge in Golden Gate Park. I could only see the bass guitar and the drums, and suddenly the saxophone piped in, the musician hidden under the bridge. A couple of minutes of unadulterated beauty.
