He would contort his fingers into perfect chords, and hum his progressions with immaculate timing while grilled chicken and baked potatoes wafted into the room from downstairs where his mother was preparing a meal. Jumping, sneakers pounding down on the hardwood floor with a crash crash crash, Johnny riffed. From downstairs his mother called, “Johnny, be good!”
