The main route was closed by a road accident and I had to take the long way around.
The very long way around.
The idea was that George and I would play the first hour or so.
|We were late starting. I think that's George behind the music stand.|
Pity really because I'd spent hours preparing for this gig - what with writing charts and practising.
What followed was hours of diatonic playing and pentatonic scales. Folkies need to remember that chromatics and outlining chords are good tools to have in your soloing bag.
Ah, but I'm just a bit bitter because I wasted lots of time that could have been put into Testore Trio charts.
Here's an interesting thing. The guy at the bottom left of the picture is Jamie. He has Downs Syndrome. He has this big love of music. Whenever he is in the room and I am playing, I know that he is taking everything in. He is a real joy to play to. I wish that everyone listened like him.
