Yesterday, February 17, we rehearsed for the upcoming gig this Friday, Feb 20 at the Canyon Bistro in Topanga Canyon, CA.  What a band, what a band.  Ken Wild on upright, Tom Rizzo on guitar, and Brad Dutz on percussion; me on keys, vocals, saxophones and the occasional melodica thrown in.  I'm really loving this.  Too much time spent alone in my home studio playing everything real and virtual myself.  When great players lend their gifts to an arrangement, listening, feeding off each other and pushing each other - what can I say?  A little bit of heaven.
