Boom boom bust

Dear Editor:Sunday afternoon’s Battle of the Bands is over, and the winner emerged victorious. Clearly the rock musicians in Rio Grande Park outblasted the 120 musicians at the Aspen Music Festival tent. The boom, boom, boom of megawatts of bass could be clearly heard above the tortured strains of Shostakovich’s 7th Symphony. The boom, boom, boom could be heard over the beauty of Yo-Yo Ma and the world premier of the Kevin Puts cello concerto commissioned by the Music Festival. I don’t know what the boom, boom, boom has to do with jazz, but at least it’s over for now. I don’t look forward to a repeat next year.Jon BuschAspen
