LESLIE HARLIB’S ODE TO THE PRESSURE COOKER

Posted Jul 31 2011 3:30pm

One of the great bonuses of travel is re-connecting with old friends.  Soon after I arrived in Northern California, I saw Leslie Harlib’s by-line on a restaurant review in the local  Marin paper.  Soon after, I read that she was playing piano for a celebration of Russian and Yiddish music in Sausalito.  I hadn’t seen Leslie in over 30 years and I took these reminders as a sign that is was time to re-connect.

Thanks to Facebook, it was a snap to send Leslie a message.  She wrote back quickly and The Sweetie (with video camera) and I met up with this remarkable Renaissance woman at her regular Thursday night gig at Marin Joe’s in Corte Madera.

Leslie’s a hilariously gifted improviser .  Click below and have a listen to the lyrics she created spontaneously to celebrate the pressure cooker!  It’s based on the wonderful Rodgers and Hart classic, I COULD WRITE A BOOK.  You can hear me laughing with surprise and delight in the background.
