Went to Lansing, MI to hang with Ed Fedewa. We talked bass shop for a while and he adjusted my bass’s sound post. It sounds way better! Ed’s a great musician and craftsman. Definitely found my bass guy in Michigan. I guess the performance today consisted of playing for Ed.
Day 203: Playing a gig at Sindbad’s in Detroit with Scott Gwinnell. Seems like a nice seafood place! Tunes, tunes, tunes.
Probably will head to Cliff Bell’s afterward to see the Paul Keller Trio with Duncan Macmillan and Sean Dobbins. First time hearing Paul play believe it or not!
200: Teaching. The Jazz Band is starting to pull “Sketches of Spain” together. Still some rhythmic issues and some other stuff to work out, but I can hear that the work is finding its identity.
201: Teaching a lesson. For some reason, I feel like I’m controlling my technique better. I’ve been playing everyday. Maybe that’s it? Of course it is. Get in the shed, Miles.
202: Shedding? Teaching. Driving Jenine to airport for SMT. Late night shedding.
