A musician comes on stage, gets dressed and straps on his instruments. Multi-instrumentalist, he is a juggler of rhythms and melodies. Great jazz classics, a range of folk themes, and his own tunes all are mangled by a character obsessed with playing everything at once, and desperately striving to achieve this goal. It may be inevitable that, at times, the instruments take over.
