Is That an AK-47 in Yo' Pocket or - ?

Truly Fine
For now, Fine, the cornet player, says it takes guts to remain in a city he sees as not only dangerous but wounded.

"There's a heaviness sitting on the city," he says. "There's a profound sense of coping with something that's lost and you can't quite put your finger on it."

Fine says he was almost robbed recently. "I was walking to my car, and I see this cat walking to meet me," he says. "And I see him start to reach in his pocket." Fine smiles. "So I started to reach into my pocket. And he ran."

Asked if anything was in his pocket, Fine says, "Courage."
