I first received the request to pick up Jerri while I was driving around working an ordinary weeknight in Monterey. Jerry was in the middle of a marvelous solo in a 1978 rendition of “Estimated Prophet.” The band was on fire.

The sky was also on fire. The golden evening light danced and glimmered off the Monterey Bay at the base of the hill before a swirling backdrop laced with hues of oranges and blues in the nightly abstract painted upon the canvas of the western Pacific sky.
