Boy on a Pogo Stick Adds Extra Percussion to a Jazz Trio Performing on a Brooklyn Sidewalk

While guitarist Bill Frisell, bassist Thomas Morgan and drummer Rudy Royston of the great Bill Frisell Trio were performing live, exquisite jazz next to a stoop somewhere in Brooklyn, a neighborhood boy literally hopped past on a pogo stick. The unique sound of the vehicle added a pop of “local color” to the percussion, if only for a few moments.

Frisell is known for his free “stoop concerts” all over Brooklyn. Sometimes he plays with the trio, while other times he plays with different musicians.
