Holocaust survivor wants to jam with Tuba Skinny; due to coronavirus, they improvise | Music

Trombonist Barnabus Jones, 41, could have stepped into this 9th Ward backyard during another century, with his mutton-chop sideburns, fedora and style of horn playing. His bandmates in Tuba Skinny are similarly timeless, as is their music, a broad repertoire of old-time jazz and blues that they play ensemble-style.

“Because of improvisation, people play off each other,” Jones said. “How we play is based on who we’re playing with.”

The self-released albums feature unreleased tunes from Tuba Skinny and jazz and swing from Jazz Vipers.

But for Tuesday’s performance, in a backyard on New Orleans’ Urquhart Street, the seven musicians were vibing partly to one another and partly to the imagined rhythms of someone unseen, an 89-year-old Belgian pianist named Simon Gronowski.

“Hey, Mr. Gronowski,” intoned washboard player Robin Rapuzzi, 32, as they began to record. “We’d like to play music with you, too.” Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, an

‘The Flight Attendant’ Star Rosie Perez Revealed She Had Coronavirus A Year Ago

Rosie Perez has revealed she had coronavirus.

The 56-year-old actress opened up about her diagnosis and symptoms that happened almost a year ago while she was filming for The Flight Attendant in Bangkok, Thailand.

“I had contracted COVID when we flew to Bangkok,” Rosie recalled in an interview with UPROXX. “And at that time, they were saying ‘It’s a new respiratory tract infection. It’s a virus that’s going around. We don’t really know what it is and what it does, but it attacks the respiratory system first and then travels to other parts of your body.’”

She admitted that having COVID was “terrifying.”

“I remember my manager was with me, and I said, ‘Tarik, don’t let me die in Bangkok.’ And he goes, ‘Oh my God, you’re scaring me.’ And the head of the ICU says, ‘You should be scared, sir. This is serious. We’re going to have to
