Film, TV legend James Garner, reluctant hero, dies

NEW YORK (AP) — Few actors could register disbelief, exasperation or annoyance with more comic subtlety.

James Garner had a way of widening his eyes while the corner of his mouth sagged ever so slightly. Maybe he would swallow once to further make his point.

Curator's Corner — Musical performers

A group of us were discussing our music favorites as we watched the band “Nashville Crush” set up for the Music in the Park series last Sunday. It was a great day for an outdoor concert and by the looks of the crowd several hundred others felt that way also. As you can imagine, everyone had their favorite genres and were very committed to following numerous artists in each. My favorite is jazz and specifically musical pieces that lean towards the blues. My tastes go back to the 1920s and 30s – Jelly Roll Morton, Satchmo, Duke Ellington, and the list goes on. At the museum this coming Friday, July 25, we are going to introduce some cool jazz featuring Chuck Sommers and his trio. This highly versatile saxophonist and his crew will take you from Hotlanta to Cool Jazz and the Big Band sound. He’s a self-taught musician who has an excellent following in Northwestern Ohio.
