So today’s my last full day in NYC, having been here in the US for almost a month. Those of you waiting for bass lessons when get home will have noticed that I’m a week later than I said I would be, which is due to me adding an extra week in NYC to the end of the trip to chase of some of the contacts I made at NAMM, do some recording with Janek.
And of course, on top of all of that, I’ve been to a load of great gigs. Top of the tree this time was Wayne Krantz, with Anthony Jackson on bass and the amazing Keith Carlock on drums (new favourite drummer). A great band, to be sure. Also last night went to see Kenny Young And The EggPlants, who were fab too. A very fine band, set to be at the Fringe this year in Edinburgh, and good friends with the Shark, so we went out to dinner after the show with the whole band. Much fun and games.
So tomorrow I’m flying home – if you want a bass lesson in the next couple of weeks, now’s the time to email, and I’m booking things in now starting Thursday evening. See you on the other side of the pond… xby
