Wow…end of the year, as we know it.

Well, the gig on the 23rd was a bit weird in the first set.  The P.A. was a bit medieval, my bass playing was shaky as i tried to negotiate the mic and not hit alex, who was snuggled in tight to my left on guitar!  Vocals were a bit drowned out by guitar frequencies & we had no horn player!  So, needless to say, the 1st set being a bit off-kilter.   We powered thru & the 2nd set was MUCH better!  We were warmed up, but then Dan Feiszli still managed to wipe the floor with us–  some of the best bass soloing  i have ever seen/heard in my life!   joe cohen arrived and rocked the alto, and we all settled in for a fine 2nd set.  All’s well that ends well!

Thanks to all who came out to brave the wind!  And a special shout out to Jeff Glass & Jeannette Sarmiento for their good help!  Jeannette came up and helped me out on “Canto de Ossanha” (Baden Powell).

Hope everybody’s feeling that warm glow from holiday spirits & good conversation!   May we somehow be able to renew our hope in the world in 2010.

Happy New Year!
