    Sunday news

    CoolAnother rainy day out there. Didn't make it even out of the house, much less to Bloomington. I don't travel worth a shit, though I enjoy being other places.
      But I had a nice conversation with the person I was supposed to go up and see. And I got in my hour of weight-training(phew!). And, miracle of miracles, even got some practicing in. Sometimes this is tough after lifting weights, as I'm pretty fatigued.
      My YouTube page will soon have some new posts, as I did some recording in with the practicing. Stumbled onto a new page on YouTube, which has a lot of tunes some of the others don't. Like Minority, which I remember playing in my Berklee days(fall of '74). And Falling Grace, also a staple from that period. There are even a couple versions of Falling Grace in there.
      Minority was written by Gigi Gryce, for what that's worth. Falling Grace is a Steve Swallow composition. I got to meet Steve Swallow, briefly, at Berklee. Seemed like quite a nice guy. My favorite album he's on is with The Art Farmer Quartet(with Jim Hall on guitar!), called From Sweden with Love. It's all Swedish folk songs, only played by jazzers. Wonderful album.
      I think 1964 was the year it was released. A year after the James Bond movie From Russia with Love. Still my favorite Bond movie...
      My cat is on my lap, draped over my left arm{yes,
    i'm doing this one-handed). More later.
