Someone help me out... Maybe I'm losin' it or maybe I expect too much or I dunno... I am a music major, it is my live, my love, the only thing I wish to do. I would love to play in a horn band (Tower of Power, Blood Sweat & Tears, Earth Wind & Fire, Chicago, ColdBlood, etc.) but realistically, I'm not good enough so I'll prolly end up teaching, which is great also cause I'll get to mold the next generation of great musicians. Now, whenever I get the chance I go to concerts and jam sessions and even stuff I don't really dig, but I give it a chance. Last nite we had a big band concert and I invited a TON of people. Not a single one showed up. They were all watching the basketball game. It kinda made me sad/mad/dissapointed etc cause these folxs are music majors too. Don't they have that same drive, the same committment? I mean, you can always catch the score to the game l.ater on ESPN or something but you can't relive a concert... grrr... So what's up? Is this all foolishness that I ought to just say whatever and move on? It was a good concert. We played a trumpet ensemble jazz feautre that Mike Metheny (Pat Metheny's brother) arranged. 5 trpts and full rhythmn, kinda a la Bill Chase stuff. Then we played a really kewl piece from Don Ellis called Strawberry Soup that was really out there with a awesome slow blues show ending closer... I just want people to be as excited and supportive about music and personal growth and etc as I am... Oh well, I know there are others out there like me. I guess that's why I'm single, I can only talk about music, lol. My social skills are lacking. Peace all. Thanks for lettin' this old kid vent.
