I was doing this jazz gig earlier this week. It was great! A bit like finding back to the essential bit of playing records out publically. Just letting the music connect you and the audience. In a very pure way. No hyped up or banging tunes, sure funky, but you know, still jazz. I guess I covered the most spectras, anything from Gainsbourg to Coltrane. Great fun, hard work though. Originally planned for 3 hours, the gig went up to almost 6 hours.
So here's a little honour to all things jazz. Yusef Lateef has been a favourite since day one basically. Well, day one counting from my involvement in jazz that is. This song - 'Like it is' is off the 'The blue Yusef Lateef' LP.
Hope you feel it!
