Getting out of my mind and into the world
Happy New Year Barbara! I have a glass raised to you. Incidentally, it was hearing Paul Desmond that made me take up the alto in 1958 - I'd been a clarinettist before that.
Happy new year one and all, I raised my own glass to everyone last evening! There's serendipity once again, Colin :)
Great to see young people turn on to music. I play string bass when playing jazz: great fun, except at 11pm when a roomful of drunks think that you really want to play O When the Saints again (and again and again...)Happy New Year!
I love Take Five. One great thing about jazz is that people who look as if they should have been accountants can become really cool. Sadly, I don't think writing poetry has the same effect.
Well one thing's for sure, I don't know many eleven year old boys who love jazz; it's an education for both of us, I'm learning as he's learning, so that's quite cool. His Christmas request was to get Some Kind of Blue on CD;That's a neat observation about jazz players, Rob - albeit jazz musicians from the 60s, I think everyone looks like an accountant in a suit and in B&W... Dominic, I just love string bass - we were watching Walk the Line last evening - anyway I love the sound it gives in the background, those low bass sonics that you just can't get from an electic pickup and an amp.
