Another lazyass day here in Samland. Went to bed at 1:19 and got up just before 10. I can adjust my hours if need be, but this seems to be my natural rhythm for now.
One new one up on YouTube. Minority is the tune. We used to play it at Berklee the semester I was there(Fall of '74--that's right, I'm old!). Fun to play,then and now.
I'm getting a lot of comments from folks wanting me to check out their Instagram sites, but the link doesn't seem to work. Still, a few people are listening. That's a good thing.And I guess I'll figure out what's going on with the links.
This has been a lazy week. Last week was busy at the end, with(no pun intended)my Colonoscopy and the preceding day of prep. All new and weird. At least when I do the next one in three years, I'll know what to expect. Also that the prep isn't all that awful, even though it's still not exactly a barrel of laughs.
Next week is busy again, with gigs on Tuesday and Thursday. Tuesday is about an hour here in town, and Thursday is 3 hours in Bloomington. I'll have to get some directions on this one. Played there once before, but it was some years ago.
And I have another one, this one in September(not on the calendar as yet). It's also about an hour, and is at the Sandbar. A benefit for someone who has Cancer. Those I'm usually glad to do. Guitar, keyboards and drums.
This is a format I like a lot. The organ trio. Played in an R& B group with this instrumentation for some years. Six of 'em.
Okay, those are the major headlines. Thanks for stopping in to see me, whoever- stops -in- to -see -me. Happy Friday- particularly if you're a 9 to 5'er, and this is your day of liberation(if only for 48 hrs). More later.
