Here is my second Paris Review entry, just put up today, about the pianist and former 821 Sixth Avenue resident Dorrie Glenn Woodson.

I want to add more information to update Dorrie’s career in the San Antonio jazz scene over the past thirty years.  She appeared for five years w her trio The Dorian Mode at the (former) Four Seasons Hotel (her husband Bill Woodson, bass; Bill Gowen, percussion).  For five years she played solo piano at the Fairmont Hotel, and for twelve years in a duo format at Jim Cullum’s Landing Patio, as well as many other venues and private parties.  She recently told me that she finds inspiration in Keith Jarrett’s ability to recover from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, so she may be back on the scene soon.
