Up And Down Are Relative
Believe it or not, this is the same BC hosted session of ”Plank Road” that brought us our second delightful version of “Wild About Your Lovin,” which I featured earlier in this memorial blog (“Still Wild”4/27/09). I got this disk out today because I wanted to hear more from THAT (yet to be named) trumpet player. All I remember is what Scot told me. This guy hadn’t played in a while. He blew full out on the first song and it took five or six songs for this guy’s lip to recover. This is the first song his lip had recovered on. I love how now after sitting out and listening to this band for five or six songs, he is ready to jump in on in a wonderfully melodic way—quite what a trumpet needs to do. My only regret is that there was no microphone on the backup singers.
I want to provide for you all tonight. Here is a nice black and white drawing with lots to contemplate about it.
