old and tired on friday
Feeling just a little moldy today. I got enough sleep, but just behind the 8-ball for now. This too shall pass..
Just heard a CD by the Joe Policastro Trio. Terrific! It's all pop tunes, but played very imaginatively. Hey, they're still great tunes, and some beautiful and sorta familiar melodies emerge.
They have two guest guitarists: Andy Brown and Andy Pratt. Andy Brown I'd heard before, playing nice smooth chord-melodies. Here he does some single-note stuff that'll knock your socks off. Dave Miller, their regular guitarist, is no slouch himself. He's just a little sloppy in places, but at the same time has a looseness in his playing that I like. A lot. There's a country ballad in there he really shines on. Good playing all around. And great arranging.
Not sure what today will bring. Feeling moldy, like I said, but I've got a little breakfast in me, and if I keep the body nourished, hopefully the head will follow.
Thanks for reading, whoever-reads-this. More later.
