I stopped by ArtWalk Saturday afternoon to catch the Al Strong Duo, one of a number of artists performing on the BBC Plaza. It was a warm, welcoming sound as folks brunched on the sidewalk at nearby Rue Cler, munched Only Burgers, and dipped in and out of downtown galleries.

Al Strong (trumpet & flugelhorn) is on NCCU's Jazz Studies faculty and is known in Latin music circles as a member of Orquesta GarDel.

It was my first time meeting Mark Wells (piano and voice). He and Al also perform regularly with the jazz quintet Peter Lamb and the Wolves.
