Fine Tuning

It’s All About the Bass

Tuning, 2019

My nephew Caleb tuning his electric bass before his high school jazz band played in the Mid-Atlantic Jazz Festival High School Band Competition in Rockville, Maryland, February 16, 2019. I am proud to say his group, The Jazz Machine, from Arlington High School in Lagrangeville, New York, took home top honors.

Uneven Surface

Bark

Bark, Coastal Redwood, Carbon Canyon Regional Park, Brea, CA

The soft, fibrous bark of the coastal redwood is fire resistant. Tannins in the bark, which can be up to 12 inches thick on a mature tree, help protect the tree from insect damage. California’s coastal redwood is the tallest tree on earth, reaching as high as a 30-story building. Trunks as wide as 27 feet have been noted. The bark in the photo is from a younger example of a tree that can reach 2000 years old. On older trees, the bark is bright orange-red.
