If that is the case (it is for me), then the Rehoboth Beach Jazz Festival is like a little vacation wrapped up inside a bigger one. So many things to do, and only four days to get it all done. My post-iazzfest wrap-up is sort of a tradition, and it's always fun to relive the adventures - at least those that I can clearly remember. There was no better way to kick-start the weekend than with Sheila E.I In my former life, my Washington, D.C. recording studio played host to Sheila E. and Prince for three all-night sessions as they scrambled to finish their "Bat- man" movie soundtrack album. It was great seeing her again on the stage at Cape Henlopen High School. Initial sound sys- S, tern slip-ups notwithstanding, by the time the 56-year-old (she looks 29) Latino percussionist took the stage, everything was perfect. Her dad, the legendary Pete Escovedo, was a special surprise, keeping up with his energetic kid on the timbales, cowbells and cymbals note for note. The man is 78! I felt bad for the people who found it necessary to rush out of the theater before the encore (Where were they going? It's 10 wings: p.m. on a Thursday at the beach in October!). That annoyance aside, the encore was the best part of the show. Sheila not only performed an amazing drum solo, but she integrated two Cape music students into the program. The high school- ers performed their sax and trumpet parts like pros. Guitarist Paul Cullen was busy on Friday, adding his cool Latin jazz to happy hour at a(MUSE.), then hightailing it over to Touch of Italy to play until 1 a.m. We enjoyed ap- petizers and Chad Ackland's incredible martinis at Espuma with none other than Bethany Beach fitness guru Lisa Velasco. This woman is the poster child for endorphins, and time with her is upbeat and memorable. She whips people into shape at Custom Fitness by Lisa and en- joys a long list of faithful fans. We tried to get her to join us at Touch of Italy, but she starts pumpin' iron at 6 a.m. (Up until that moment I thought 6 came around only once - followed by sunset.) We restrained ourselves at Espuma, saving room for Touch JAZZ BRUNCH at Back Porch Cafe: of Italy's crispy Focaccia alla Robiola da Ciro prepared by our favorite pizza guy, Biaggio Lucci. Of course you don't go to Touch of Italy without grazing the pasticceria, and smiling deli Continued on page 40 BOB YESBEK PHOTOS The traditional Eggs Benedict!
