|What’s Up Friends!
I’m listening to Larry Goldings and Peter Bernstein play a tune called “Fagen” and I wonder if it’s written for Steely Dan’s Donald Fagen? Anyone know? I’m a big fan of both Bernstein and Fagen and it’d be nice to see and hear those two stir it up together.
Peter Bernstein, a wonderful guitar player with great ideas and a superior tone! A superhuman good fellow too! It’ll all came together a year and half back that we played a house concert in Encinitas. The joy of music was everywhere and it reaffirmed the many reasons why it’s good to live on.
Let’s do it again!
It’s happening again on Friday evening and I think there are still some tickets left. Again at a house in Leucadia and music magic is guaranteed!
Look below for the deets and I hope to see you there….
Out on the end of the week, on Sunday, beautiful vocalist Allison Adams Tucker along with pianist Danny Green, sax man Tripp, and myself will make music together drawing upon the cool new tunes from Alli’s latest recording RETRO Trilogy. She’s selected classic tunes from the 80’s that inspired her and dressed them up in jazz clothes and teamed up with high powered NYC musos to pull it off. I was invited to the party too and it’s a neat gang to be in the loop with. We even wrote a new tune for the album.
The concert for this Sunday is taking place at a private home in inland Solana Beach. It’s a fantastic spot out in the backyard with loads of trees and infinite sky above. After you purchase tickets, Allison will get you the address and from there it’s all systems go. Hope you can make it.
Right now the Bernstein playlist is spinning this funky blues called “Carrot Cake”. I just wrote Peter requesting that we fit it into the setlist. Fingers crossed —funky jazz and carrot cake!
all best, Peter
