|Greetings Good Folks, I’m just drying off from the salt water mini surf, blend in some super clean air and blue skies surf session. Today was a good day! Up early, minimal email duties, mixing, rehearsing, water tai chi (surfers walk on water did you know?) and now off to a dad and daughter hit at the Thai Society. It’ll be Thai food with Ky. Good world spinning!
Last week’s hurricane gig schedule leads into a much easier paced current week. Highlight’s previous were the True North Singers singing full blast involved harmonies at Mira Costa College and then the Jen Convention in downtown SD. The convention was a wild collection of young and old jazz heads searching for the truth in sound. I’m not sure if everyone found it but it seemed like they were at least digging the journey. On from there it was a stellar Dizzy’s gig with vocalist Sinne Eeg leading the way. Oh my, super gorgeous music and we’re talking about doing it again down the road. She’ll be living in LA on and off for the next 6 months. I’ll let you know…
Up for this week, tomorrow night my trio plays a show at the fantastic Fallbrook Library. We hit at 7pm and it’s free to get in. The library has killer sound and folks really listen there. Inland music reigns!
The highlight this week will be our 2 concerts with Camarada playing “Salt Water Jazz”. We’ve culled through my original songs and put together a program of pieces that are inspired by my salt water surfing adventures. Songs like “Uluwatu”, “Na Pali Coast”, “Musica Del Mar”, a brand new one called “Saltwater”, and we even have our wicked version of the Beach Boys hit “Good Vibrations” in there to bring it on home. The band is Beth Ross-Buckley on flute, Fred Benedetti on guitar, Gunnar Biggs on bass, Duncan Moore on drums and me on guitar. Look below for the details and the concerts take place on Saturday and Sunday night. Hang ten!
Last up for this week will be a free duo concert on Sunday afternoon at the Scripps Ranch Library. It’ll be vocalist Leonard Patton and I jumping in and mixing up the Stevie Wonder, The Beatles, Hoagy Carmichael, Nat King Cole influences into a sonic whirlwind. See you there!
That’s the rap for now folks and thanks for reading along…all best, Peter
