|Friends, this isn’t me or my life:
In fact I’m leaning towards being overly occupied. My calendar is busting at the seams and I’m LOVING it! Bring on the music, let the south swells loose and make their way to the Encinitas beaches, show me the menus of all those cool veggie haunts so my family and I can zane out on new tastes and camaraderie.
It’s a good life!
The reason I bring it up is because I’ve been immersed in all things Cole Porter-ian. We’ve got a concert next week and I’m exploring his music, shaping it up to fit into our vision of jazz, funk, and samba. It’s a stretch and it’s a joy whirling around his extremely clever and creative world.
We’re opening the concert with this verse:
My story is much too sad to be told
And that’s where I discovered ennui.
Viva revolution anti ennui!
This week I’m playing a bunch of solo guitar private gigs so unfortunately I’ll miss you there. But here’s my one public concert and it’s going to be a hoot. Allison sings beautifully and the band including Josh Nelson on piano, is stellar! Hope you can make it out for a wonderful night of new music…
SAN DIEGO Fri 9/16 8PM, Sunset Temple Theater (North Park)
All right good people, I’m off and running, back into the studio to talk with Cole Porter and pick up his clues on a new way to present “Love For Sale”.
all the best, Peter
