His religion?

The 56th Annual Monterey Jazz Festival is this weekend.

I walked behind this man while on the way to the weekly downtown Monterey Farmers market.  He was on his way there to play old jazz records along one of the market sidewalks….just because.

In tow, along with records, is an old record player.

A gramophone?  You don’t see these around anymore!
