I really don't like blogging when I am not in the mood but I need to get word out about Saturday's gig. (blogging is all about fun! no?)
We rehearsed today at Don Thompson's house and what a treat. Having Don on his beautiful grand piano and Clutton on Don's bass and nick fraser on his drums was a perfect setting for playing music.
Rehearsals are funny as you are usually short on time (today it was me as I had to pick up the kids) and you do brief "run-throughs" of tunes and hardly have time to really work on anything.
It still felt great. I am really looking forward to this gig. We are doing a lot of old tunes of mine, a Sonny Greenwich tune, an Ornette tune and a beautiful new tune that Don wrote. (oh yes, some standards and one of my fave Rob clutton tunes)
So here are the deets:
Tim Posgate Quartet featuring Don Thompson (piano)
Saturday May 27, 8pm
The Red Guitar, 603 Markham St.
Hope you can make it!
