Giuseppi Logan, now with a flute


[EVG file photo from Sept. 7]

We're used to seeing jazz legend Giuseppi Logan in Tompkins Square Park with a saxophone. We hadn't seen him for awhile … then yesterday morning, we spotted him with …



We asked him where his sax was … well, you know how soft-spoken he is … he simply said that "they took it," and didn't elaborate any further about what happened. He said that he played the flute in the 1960s (did he say in Paris?), but was a little rusty.

We posted this photo yesterday on the EVG Facebook page, and several people are looking into getting him a replacement. And it's not the first time that people have come together to help Giuseppi.

"They" took it? That sax was a Selmer; replacing it will take some serious crowdfunding!

What the fuck?! Somebody(ies) stole his sax? Is that right?

Maybe he sold it. It's a pretty rare, coveted brand of sax thus one you can get quite a pretty penny for.
