Side Man
Adapt. Wail. Dissipate. Set between the 1950s and the 1980s, this lovely and poignant memory play unfolds through the eyes of Clifford, the only son of Gene, a jazz trumpet player, and Terry, an alcoholic mother. Alternating between their New York City apartment and a smoke-filled music club, Clifford narrates the story of his broken family and the decline of jazz as popular entertainment. Winner of the 1999 Tony Award for Best Play. Directed by Richard Stockton Rand.

Men who mastered their obsession,

Who ignored, or didn't notice anything else.

They played not for fame,

And certainly not for money.

They played for each other.

To swing.

To blow.

Night after night,

They were just burning brass.

Oblivious.
