The clarinetist that played on Lenny Breau's "Complete Living Room Tapes"
came by the club where I was playing tonight. He is going to come sit in
with us at some of our gigs while he is in town. I think he will be here about
a month. That will be really cool!

Whoa, very cool.

Clarinet is such a nice instrument for jazz, I wish there were more players.

Congrats, hey I heard your man Bucky Pizzarelli last night for 1 nice set. He is a charismatic soul and a dapper dresser; and wow he still plays and sounds great. He played a couple of tunes on classical guitar with a pick, it was awesome. He played some good standards with the band, most of which I now recognize.I thought I'd tell you jazzerchick.
I had to miss Jimmy Bruno on saturday,I like to get out there in support, but I'm too damn sore with a shoulder injury. I do still love Jimmy.

Ed, Glad you got to hear Bucky. He's such a wonderful player and
extra nice guy! He's quite an inspiration. Plays all the time and
still travels a lot. He's truly one of our guitar treasures.
Jimmy Bruno too. What a talent!

Hope your shoulder improves soon!

Clarinet and guitar make a nice duo because clarinet has a light
sound. It's hard to find clarinet players now tho. Some sax players
play clarinet but usually as a double and then only if they have to.

Hopefully you will share some live recordings of you and the clarinet man, I loved the way you sounded with the trumpet player.
Not to hijack.... but I hadda scream outloud.... ok I feel better finally, I played all morning without pain Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy It was just an injury and it will continue to heal. I feared something worse, but if you saw the weight I carried on my shoulders and back in recent months... in below freezing weather... well you'd understand too, that it was just an injury. You see I feared I had cancer, blood poisoning,osteopourosis, arthur-itis ,MS, Parkinson's or something else. It feels certain that it is just an injury. 3 weeks now, the longest I have ever been this incapacitated, it sucks. I'm Irish , I simply must have my strong back or else i'll have nothing at all. I can't go down like that.
God Bless anyone who does suffer like that. I mean how do good nice people get so sick everyday?. We should always be thankful for health. I would have to pull a Hemingway if it got real bad, I can't see how people do it. Putting up with illness and pain takes more strength than I have. I admire people who did it; like Frida Khalo or Jeff Healey, the great jazz and blues man who sadly passed away Sunday.
Thanks for the positive thoughts Jazzerchick, Brandon , and Paul. I will be back.

Ed, I'm so glad you are starting to heal. It seems like injuries to things
like shoulders, elbows, in my case knees, and other things involving
muscles that we use all the time,seem to be so slow to heal.
Just be patient and time will be on your side.
I'm like you in that I start thinking of all the worst possibilities. Oh well,
at least it's a relief when it hopefully turns out to be not as bad as you
thought.
Ditto your thoughts on why things happen the way they do. I guess we
just have to live one day at a time and be thankful for what we
do have going for us.
Several of my musician friends are going thru really rough things
right now and it seems like all one can do is send positive thoughts
and be there if they need help.

The clarinetist from Lenny Breau's "Living Room Tapes" came by and
played with us last night. His name's Brad Terry and he's just
fabulous! Also a great jazz whistler and totally fun guy to play with.

Lenny Breau would come visit him at his farm house in Maine and they'd
sit and just play with the tape rolling. They also did some duo concerts,
always recorded. After Lenny's passing, an album of the best was
released. Now a two CD set of more of the recordings is out, with a
lot of previously unreleased things.

Mr. Terry brought me a copy of the "Complete Living Room Tapes".
What a cool thing!
He's going to come to our Monday night jam now. Sweet!

Sometimes just when you least expect it, something really great
happens!

Excited!
