Super Quick Update: A few shows on the horizon including two work parties, back to the P&G on Saturday the 26th, and an Art Walk show in early August.
At one upcoming show, David LaVallee is making a leap and bringing some of his improv pals over to compare and contrast the improv we do with guitars vs. the improv he's been studying with voice. The parallels and overlap are not surprising for anyone who recognizes that, from one point of view, music is a language.
Looking forward to exploring the overlap.

With so much music in the can, I'm constantly considering multiple methods to loosen the production bottleneck. I'm not in a phase where I can burn midnight oil to mingle with muses -- but they are still singing loud and clear.

An Inventory of Recent Excellent (semi-one-sided) interactions: Lunch with AaronS and an inspiring conversation about working in groups; a nice recommendation on Linked-In from old friend+fan+amplifier expert, Kevin Hilbiber; an accidentally deleted phone message from Jaxie, just back from a GC course in Spain with a gift CD (new Gauchos! disc sent from brother Martin.)
Also: quick phone call with Tobin about a potential high-visibility placement for The Crossing; a small but significant favor for Patricia Fripp; and planning for an upcoming KUOW interview with Jeanie Yandel, who was present on a significant day in 2006 during the second session.
