Big band playing. What a hoot. Two hours of sightreading big band standards including Fly Me to the Moon. Sign me up for more of that.
A quiet week ahead. Practicing, lots of practicing. Piano and drums.
What a week.
Wow! Was he excited. Started messing with the controls, eyes as wide a saucers. His proud dad stood back beaming. Cool.
Monday: recording session with my buddy Rory Slater. I'm on piano, he is on bass, we'll be swingin'.
Thursday: Jazz jam on piano, then jazz jam on drums if I still have energy.
Friday: New Orleans drum workout with drummer Lowell Whitty. Our annual tune up in preparation for the New Orleans workshop this summer. Funky fun.
One highlight this week is setting up my electronic music studio for some synth madness.
Upcoming is more composition for my jazz and blues students. Custom music is the way to go.
What I'm up to behind the scenes.
