  • Guitar Jam with Cosimo Fabrizio ’18 and NA Spanish teacher Alexis Romay

    A note (pun-intended) on “A Day in the Life of a Fool” by Alexis Romay
    Over the years, I’ve listened to many versions of “A Day in the Life of a Fool” —also known as “Manhã de Carnaval” and/or the theme/song from the Brazilian film Black Orpheus. Aside from Luiz Bonfá’s original, my favorite versions of the song oscillate between the ones recorded by Stan Getz, Vince Guaraldi, Dexter Gordon, and Astrud Gilberto… Now I have to add to that musical constellation the solo performed by Cosimo Fabrizio ’18 during one of our recent impromptu jamming sessions, in which he delivers one minute and ten seconds of pure enlightenment. (To make it even more extraordinary, I must add that Cosimo had never played the song before that day.)
