I’m feeling like a little blues today. Pretty sure this is the same line-up as “Mystery Track.” That means (I think) Tom Smith-living and breathing the blues on harp, Jerry Farnsworth-taking it easy (but not too easy) with the blues on guitar, Kenny Wright-on the drums and in the pocket, and Scot Halpin-diving into a champagne bath of the blues, on bass. Scot really came to live and breathe roots music.
The artwork for today is another hand-colored etching, called “Imagination.” It was done in the mid-1990’s, I’d say. When I saw it today, it reminded me of another lifetime, sitting in a San Francisco café—writing way back then.
