1 Live at L'Anjou on Sun Apr 03, 2011 10:02 am

Having fun with this new compilation of old recordings from 2003-2004:

My first time using Soundcloud and very impressed. Great service so far!

L'Anjou French Restaurant, est. 1977, closed its doors last year. The space is still vacant except for ghosts and furniture. The restaurant became famous in the film Body Heat.

Two of the musicians on these recordings, trumpet and tenor sax, are no longer on the planet.

I recorded this stuff using a 1995 Sony video camera's stereo mic, placed on the floor pointed at the ceiling.

These were the days when I used a 4-piece kit and I miss the tympani floor tom, but I like the low ride cymbal these days and the 3-piece kit. I've grown as a player since then, but still find this stuff valid and plan on cranking it in my convertible hovercraft at age 89.

Nice playing Woofus,
The mix was well balanced for the device you used to record. I enjoyed listening.
Well Done! Cool

Thanks, dudes. Dave, I call it my "freakin' video camera" because of the wicked stereo condenser it has, especially good in that small room, but even great outside. I've compared it to a fairly high end new Sony and still prefer it . . . I've heard of some stereo condensers costing over 20 grand.

I have no favorite on this Keith! It's all good to my ears...

Like Anibal said, you play with confidence! That confidence is evident in "jazz," since the genre of jazz (within the classic sense) is not about dropping a beat. Rather's in the classic sense, it's about interpretation and making music within the confines of Time and melodics.

It's almost like the environment Woofus - i.e. we are stewards of what we have and maintaining the REST for others to appreciate.

I've always shared (while I've yet to meet you) that you do that very well my friend.

... and the gadget you use captures the necessary nuances. I can easily imagine eating stone crab out on the veranda listening to you and the group with a special dressing as prepared by Monte's Crab in Boca Raton. Yet that location has closed as well. Are they still today in Miami Beach/South Beach as I remember them?

May those who are no longer with us remain asleep until that Great Day. May those who understand our human frailty, seek for our Deity.



Shalom!
