And another..........

Another great gig, 2 back to back. I played at Constable Jack's with Mick Martin and the Blues Rockers last night. This version of the Rockers: Mick, Bruce Pressly, Russ Skarsten and Ted Stancliff. This was far from Mick's regular band, we had never all played together. In spite of that we had great chemistry right from beat one and a splendid time was had by all.

What made it so good once again was the ensemble concept of all the players. Everyone listened, blended and grooved. Lots of dynamics, lots of funk. What a joy to play with such great unselfish musicians!!!!!

It's all about ensemble playing, music is a team sport. You are only as good as you are at playing together. Some get that, some don't. These guys get it!!!!!


  1. Very cool, Joe! I had a similarly wonderful gig last night at a private party with Jerry Woods, Larry Gosch, Gerry Pineda, Larry Schiavone and myself. I think the spirit of Mitch Faber was with us, because everyone was so in tune to the dynamics, and little musical jokes abounded. Man, I miss that guy already.

  2. I know man, it's hard.He will be missed.
