    We finished the East Price Hill Jazz Fest with the crowd wanting more... but alas there was a band to go on after us. Anyway, here is what I played today.

    Surrendered Life - A song written by our leader, Eddie and is on our band's CD
    Potter's Clay - Swing/bop tune written by our sax player, Jack Novotny
    I'll Remember April - Jazz standard by Raye-DePaul Johnstone
    Midnight in Tuscany - An Italian ballad written by me... a Hungarian... Go figure
    Cheesecake - Dexter Gordon bop tune
    Myth of Poseidon - Swing tune writte by our Keyboard player Keigo Herakawa
    Povo - Jazz Rock standard written by Freedie Hubbard

    Unfamiliar w/your playlist, but it is noteworthy that so much of your stuff was original. And your outcome was certainly the best that could be expected!:thumbsup:

    Jim, Fort Wayne is not that far away, we could have made you more familiar with our play list. It was a beautiful day in a valley surrounded by rolling hills with victorian houses boarding the park. It reminded me very much of San Francisco, as Cincinnati has the recognition as being the second hilliest large city in the country.

    KT, it would be my pleasure to provide you with my autograph, but even more a pleasure for you to be able to experience our music live.

    Surrendered Life

    Very nice, Gary. Thank you! I really enjoyed your solo between 2.30 and 3.40. Was that your Recording or Committee? I appreciated your encouragement concerning attending some concerts, too. Dayton, Cincinnati, and Columbus are all within day-tripping distance for us. Hopefully, as I get closer to retirement and various academic responsibilities diminish, my Mrs. and I will have a little more time for fun!

    A lot of Polkas.

    It pays as well as anything else.

    Re: Surrendered Life


    Thanks much Jim for the complement. Claudio Roditi did teach me well. I owe much of my jazz vocabulary to him



    Neither, that was my large bore Getzen Eterna Flugelhorn. One of the reasons I bought the Kanstul was to mellow the flugelhorn sound which has been accomplished with the Kanstul as while the Getzen warms up in the lower range, I play much of my soloing in the upper range, and wanted to keep a mellower sound in that range.


    Jim, put in a good word for the EBQ at the Jazz Kitchen in Indianapolis, and we come closer to your door step. We have hit the circuit in Ohio with Gillys and the Nighttown, but even with these club owners connections, we have yet to crack into the performance schedule at the Jazz Kitchen.
