Here’s a picture of a gig a played in San Francisco a few months ago with Barabas Lorinc from Hungary when he came to the states. Anyway… it’s not really a heatwave where I live on the coast, but inland a bit it’s an oven out there. I am at the moment tending to some music that I have to learn for a performance in Nashville next week, so that has been a daily fixture in my schedule for the last week or so . Just finished a remote session for a client on the service that I do my online work through, check that out here. I have been very pleased with the work I have been asked do there through the folks at Soundbetter.com. I’ll be in Nashville through NAMM weekend and look forward to hearing and seeing musicians and friends, respectively. I’ve also been working on some original new music with some friends and great musicians, so when things are done I will be sharing it with you ! Have a nice day my friends !
Another beautiful day ! Nice things going on. Today I am playing with the Ojai Pops in an outdoor concert in Ojai CA. Very good musicians in this group. A real hybrid of classical and jazz players. There’s got to be about 40 people in this group. We’ll be playing movie scores at the Libbey Bowl in Ojai CA. Other than that, on the complete other side of the musical spectrum this week I recorded some bass for an upcoming Dtease album, produced at Rose Lane studios. Check them out, their music is very aggressive ! Please try to support them if you are feeling it.
I’ve also had a real calling for composing and collaborating on some original music, so this week I’ve been in touch with an old Berklee friend, whom I haven’t seen since the 80’s, but instrinsically trust him and really like his vibe. I have two other gentleman here in LA working with me on this as well. As it unfolds, it will be made public.
I was turned on to The Oblique Strategies, by Brian Eno this week from my “intrinsic” friend. If you’ve ever had any creative block, I’m sure you’ll be interested. Read about them here. Check out the cool picture below just for fun too…..Later
Its beautiful outside today. The weather is just perfect, not a cloud in the sky. I am getting ready to head over to Squashed Grapes in Ventura to see my friendGergo Borlai play some drums with Scott Kinsey and Jimmy Earl. Can’t wait to hear this. He is also putting on a little drum clinic, so it’ll be nice to learn some new things ! Getting ready for a big show up in Fresno on May 20th. I’ll be substituting on bass with The Dtease, playing an opening spot for a band called Puddles of Mudd. Its very loud and very rocking, so I have been turning it up a bit ! I look forward to it !
It’s going to be a hell of a year ! I’m hoping you all have a fantastic year, walk the straight line, and listen to great music. Thanks for everyone’s support. Best to all….…
