Instagram is now WordPress Friendly

I’m just experimenting with the fact that Instagram pics are now embeddable on WordPress. Perhaps they have always been embeddable in this fashion, but the capability is new to me.

Visiting The Timbers Army, May 2012

I took this picture at a Portland Timbers soccer game in Portland, Oregon. The Timbers defeated the Chicago Fire by a score of 2-1.

This one I took at The Lenox Lounge in Harlem, sometime in 2012, which was before it closed.

There are no wrong notes on the piano, just better choices.

Thelonius Monk said that.

Since I’m Not In Newport Today, I’m Watching This

without comments

Update: Later Saturday. The music and streaming is done for the day.

Here’s a trip back to Newport, 1958. It’s the documentary film “Jazz on a Summer’s Day.”
(Sorry for the obnoxious ad that runs before the film starts.)

The live video feed from The 2012 Newport Jazz Festival, via NPR Music.

You can also listen via this stream courtesy WBGO.
