One of my favorite moments of the weeklong residence at The Stone was playing with Foreign Legion, the band I led throughout the 1980’s. Each player’s style had so many layers of development and growth, but our individual voices rang through just as they had when we were starting out.  Here we are in 1984 on Avenue A.  From the left,
