Our Visit to Infinity Music Hall & Bill Frizell's Beautiful Dreamers

Just one of many still life's & settings at the Mountain View Inn.
We were getting ready to return to our neck of the woods, after a wonderful birthday breakfast.
Our fam's Birthday guy, who is the music man of this family.

The headliners for our special evening~
Bill Frisell's Beautiful Dreamers

It was all so worth the wait, & the 2 1/2 hour trip across the state up to the Berkshires.
At the box office just before the performance, of which every aspect of the evening was handled with true TLC by all the staff involved, making us feel most welcomed.
This sweet gal one of Infinity Hall's staff was a pure joy to encounter & most helpful too.

Just one of many beautiful rooms at the Mountain View Inn of where we stayed. All the oil paintings placed so perfectly were done by Dean Johnson host of the Mountain View Inn.

The artist & his work along side his sunflower which brings so much beauty & joy into the space that Dean & Jean Marie so lovingly share with their guests in their beautiful Victorian home.

It's been nonstop for us & only now do we have some time to stay put & to pause. In honor of my husband's birthday we were off this past Thursday for an out of town jaunt to Norfolk, Ct. to attend a Bill Frisell's Beautiful Dreamers Concert at Infinity Music Hall. It was of course a wonderful get away. We stayed overnight at the Mountain View Inn, right there in Norfolk, & were treated like royalty by Dean & Jean Marie Johnson. Every aspect of our stay was wonderful, including the gourmet breakfast of fresh made granola, yogurt, quiche, sausage, pumpkin bread, & apple strudel. The Happy Birthday breakfast dessert of a wonderful fresh baked cake, candle & whipped cream really did top the chart!

Bill Frisell, Eyvind Kang, & Rudy Roystan truly played the music of beautiful dreamers. The music at times was truly other worldly, as I would close my eyes, to listen to the beautifully blended jazz of electric guitar, viola, & drums, to be transported to where one goes when they are experiencing being one with the music. When they transitioned into their own original version of~ In My Life & then later Strawberry Fields, it was as if the sensation of a personal birthday gift was being given to my husband Steve amongst all the heavenly notes.

We will certainly return to both locals, as it was a wonderful jaunt, that filled all the senses, of a much welcomed get away into the mountains, with culture & style.
