We had to move Sofie’s new drum kit to the other side of the room to make room for the rich sounds of Stephen’s sax and Jaxie’s violin this evening. Wow, I’m loving the ever expanding palette. And the four part harmonies appear to have grown stronger over the holiday break. Go. Figure.
Work for the evening: reconnect with our current building repertoire that consists of arrangements for three guitars, four voices, flute, now soprano sax and eventually violin and cello including:
- Lay My Love
- Two Minus One
- Modern Monkey Math
- Mother of Violence
- Hammond Song
- Bottom Rung
- Love is Everything

I’ll continue to share more details about this project as I continue to emerge into this next, more public period of work.
