My friend Tim Curtin has been playing a weekly Thursday night gig in the Bronx, my old haunt , at a joint called Paddy Doherty's Ale House.
He usually has one or two guys with him and invites musicians to sit in and jam. Not really an open mic thing, just people that he knows .
I've gone to a few of these recently as he has been having musicians show up that I haven't seen in literally 30 or 35 years. It's been such fun to re-unite with these guys and to get to jam with some of them that I've never played with before because we were all in different bands.
So here's a video clip from thursday the 17th. I had been bringing my camera along to tape some of the shows for Tim so I had it set up when he asked me to play. Believe it or not, the darn thing went out of focus for the first tune we did, Stormy Monday, but refocused itself for most of this tune, which is White Room by Cream. It goes out of focus about 3 minutes in, stays out for a little over a minute, and then becomes clear for the end. Wierd, don't know why it did that. But anyway, the audio is fine and just think of it as a psychedelic camera effect.
Hope you like it. Takes a minute or two to load so be patient !
The drums are not mine. I was told they are 1974 Ludwig's that have been re--covered .
