I had the pleasure of playing music over the holidays with my friend Moose, formally known as Masood Ali Khan. Moose is an amazing musician. He plays the Hang, which is kind of like a steel drum that looks like a flying saucer. It has a lovely, other-worldly sound. Moose and I jammed one night and I got to play his Hang, which is a true pleasure to play. Check out his music at http://masoodalikhan.com/
Moose and his wife Alyson stayed with us on New Years Eve. We had a great time. However, on New Years Day Moose got a call from his brother in London that their mother had died. It was tremendously sad. Moose had to leave the same day for London. He is still there and I have not spoken to him since. I hope he is doing OK.
