Rasheed & The Jazz Collective Performing ‘The Way You Look Tonight’ on a Warm Summer Day in New York City

Walking through Washington Square Park in Greenwich Village yesterday we came across Rasheed & The Jazz Collective performing a wonderful 22 minute version of “The Way You Look Tonight”, the perfect soundtrack for a warm summer day in New York City. Several times during the song Rasheed plays a solo on two trumpets at the same time, which was really great to see.

‘Rowdy’ Roddy Piper, legendary professional wrestling villain and star of the 1988 cult classic John Carpenter sci-fi film They Live, died in his sleep on July 30, 2015 from of cardiac arrest at age 61.

RIP legend. I first met this wrestling icon when I was 12yrs old when he was wrestling my pops the WWE. For weeks and weeks after that meeting I would have my mom set up a video camera in the kitchen as I would "become" Hot Rod and mimmic and emulate his every word, style, swag, heat, cool cockiness and all delivered with his classic smile (and my awful 12yr old afro).He was a huge influence on me as a kid and an even bigger one when I became The Rock in the WWE. Thank you Roddy for all the talks, all the stories (especially the crazy ones about my grandfather and grandmother????) all the advice and most importantly.. all the memories of you entertaining us fans. You're missed my friend. Heaven just got a lil' rowdier… Rest in love ~ DJ #JustWhenTheyThinkTheyHaveAllTheAnswers #HotRodChangesTheQuestions
