A beautiful day out there today, well sorta beautiful. One of them clouds n' sun affairs. A B- sort of day.
A fair amount of practice yesterday, but only taped one tune which I didn't keep. Airegin, by Sonny Rollins. Sooner or later I'll get a keeper from that one. It's fun to play, and a nice challenging tempo.
Got a gig tomorrow, from 5:30-7:30. Nice compact gig, just two sets. The only hassle is getting there and getting a parking space(it's a downtown gig, see the page for more details). From there it's all fun.
Still no word on the Illinois College job. Checking the mail every day..
In other music news, I've acquired a new keyboard. Roland Fantom 66. Had it here in the laboratory a couple years ago, and ended up buying it. I need to have a 'play day' with it again. But it's all set up and ready to rock.
Today a good friend of mine(and fellow struggling musician) is having the first of several surgeries to try to restore at least some of his eyesight. I posted about this awhile back, when the problem was first addressed. It's gonna be what it's gonna be as far as outcome, but I reckon prayers and good thoughts couldn't hurt anything. Send 'em if you've got 'em..
Well that's all I've got for now. Time to move on to other activities that make up my morning: at least another cup of coffee, my daily Lumosity games(I'm signed up with 'em), maybe just maybe some guitar practice.
Thanks for reading, whoever-reads-this. More later.
