Classic big band stuff.  :-D

Thanks guys.
I'm looking forward to 'throwing it down' after such along winter and I must admit that the Distillate has been gathering dust for various reasons, partly because of upright playing but mostly just being in a slump. . .  :-(
 
Been practicing all week and it REALLY feels good having my Alembic in my hands - they really make sweet arse instruments! Thanks Mica and crew!

Had a New Years Eve gig last night with the Swing of Pearls band.
We played at a retirement community center on the shore of Lake Michigan.  Being an older crowd we played 7:00 - 10:-00.
 
We played a group of 'new' songs that I wasn't well versed on and the show was nearly sublime. My Distillate and I were on auto-pilot. . .  Things went so smooth and was so easy that after laying my bass in her case and prior to closing it I said, thank you baby.
 
With that I extend the thanks to the Wickersham vision and proficient execution of creating an instrument that truly does 'drive itself'. I also thank everyone who was involved with the build of 84D3204   , my baby.
 
Happy new year indeed!
8-D

So not really a gig but certainly a trip down memory lane.
A little snippet from a local Milwaukee station highlighting the Milwaukee Police Band, the director Karen Dubis recruited me many years ago (she also directs the Swing of Pearls band that I played with.
There is some comments from Karen and if you listen to her you understand why she was such an absolute joy to play for... music- she gets it!   :D

She certainly does! There's nothing quite so satisfying as playing music with a group of people that share that passion. It's rare, and rewarding. Takes good leadership like this.
