Hey all. Thanks for your suggestions vis a vis contrapuntal guitar stuff. I'll be checking it all out!
We just finished a great run at Yoshi's(SF and Oakland).
Thursday night in SF. Derrek(friends seen, right now move),Scott(shango,natty dread,candyman)and Willard(pound for pound)all converged for a great reunion of past drummers. What a blast it was to play with everyone.
The evening was completed when the incomparable Zigaboo Modeliste sat in! Yes!
Sunday night Ben Goldberg came down .I was worried we'd overpower the clarinet but Tony grooved his ass off at low volume and Ben sounded great. We'll be doing gigs in February with Ron Miles and Scott Amendola.
The whole run culminated(for me at least)when Jim Campilongo sat in.
That's my kind of guitar hero! He really kicked us into another gear!
I highly recomend his two discs "Heaven Is Creepy" and "American Hips".
