“Music is your own experience, your own thoughts, your wisdom. If you don’t live it, it won’t come out of your horn. They teach you there’s a boundary line to music. But, man, there’s no boundary line to art.” ~ Charlie Parker
Suzy and I were busy this weekend. First we have the normal family get-togethers and the weather was cooperating. Then there was my sax quartet gig at Ballard Locks. It was lightly raining part of the time but we had over 35 people listening to us. And many, many people come up and talk to us about playing in high school and loving the music. We even had two requests for a CD.
We played soprillo, soprano, alto, tenor, and bari sax. We had charts from Paul Coats and Russell Peterson plus more. Very enjoyable and quite the challenge to work up with only 4 practices this year.
