gig 012 – w/House Band #9

Saturday May 27, 2006
@ Café Pazzazz on rue de l’Eglise in Val-David, Quebec
9:30 pm-12:30am

John Sobol – sax
Jean-François Barbeau – drums/batterie
François Myrand – basse
Richard St-Aubin – acoustic guitar

35 spectators
Set 1: 35 minutes
Set 2: 35 minutes
Set 3: 35 minutes
Improvised instrumental jams on simple and not-so-simple song forms
Serious grooves and extended blowing on my part
especially due to the absence of our lead guitarist Lauren
so I blew and blew and blew
can't beat it really
had some fun with the crowd too
found a voice with whcih to address them
something that has been somewhat elusive at Pazzazz
a rowdy voice
hectoring and playful
stirring things up
very nice
not so loud without Lauren too
easier for me to fill the room without worrying about using a mic
managed to play In A Semtinmental Mood over some completely unrelated groove and found that Duke's timeless melody was like ambrosia – I could twist it and turn it any which way and it was always scorching achingly gorgeous
even over this unconnected groove
very cool
