When musicians think of jazz, they might concentrate on its intricate, propulsive rhythms, or the improvisatory, virtuosic solos.

Walking down the street, I couldn't remember which house it was, but suddenly I heard the familiar trombone and it guided me to my destination. Students of Harold "Hal" E. Wetherwax had made a circle around the grand piano in the living room and they were remembering their teacher by playing lively music after the morning funeral. The piece was "Sunny.
