Frank Foster was playing a street concert from the Jazzmobile in Harlem. He called for a blues in B-flat. A young tenor player began to play "out" from the first chorus, playing sounds that had no relationship to the harmonic progression or rhythmic setting. Foster stopped him. "What are you doing?" "Just playing what I feel. "Well, feel something in B-flat, mother****er"

I blew through the exhibition in 10 minutes or less, not because I didn't like it, but because I was there to see non-musical stuff. Numerous immaculate archtops, a pretty mandola that Elizabeth Taylor commissioned Monteleone, if I recall correctly, to make for her son, some mandolins as seen in the link above, then some older instruments at the back. I managed to snap a few poor quality pics of those before a stern woman approached me like she was going to pull out a taser. No photos in the special exhibitions, as it turns out.

Definitely not. She meant business.  :P Probably has to deal with too many guitar nerds every day. The pics I did get though were taken right in front of another guard who didn't care.

I suppose so, although I don't see any viola d'amore or mandolinetto t-shirts or silly bandz.

It's a strange world, one that I don't pretend to understand. So much is proprietary--both above and below the surface. There's probably some exclusive rights to the images deal (and protection/enforcement of such) at work in the background, otherwise it all would have been fair game.
