When Jeremiah plays his saxophone, all his troubles evaporate. His fingertips tingle as they tickle the chrome buttons. The golden sound of his sax swims through his ears to soothe his mind, and everything feels right. He has a different relationship with each tone he produces, and any element of his life can be translated to song to fill the air. When this happens, he never feels alone. He certainly does not feel alone tonight as he stands on the stage of the County Convention Center playing for friends, neighbors, and even strangers. Some of them have driven several hours to hear him paint the air with his music. As soon as the first note reaches toward the audience, Jeremiah knows it is going to be a magical night.
