I’m Austin today (Sunday). I’ve never been here before. I’m staying across the street from the legendary Continental Club. It’s been a whirlwind of a day, all of it spent with my new friends from Nomad Sound. Sorry to say I was too exhausted by 10 to walk across the street and check out the Continental. Maybe tomorrow night.
Getting here was no easy task. I don’t fly well as it is, and the flight was a stomach churning adventure .. on top of dealing with day five of a cold, that pretty much sapped my strength.
The highlight of my weekend was working with my friends in Euforquestra and Judge Roughneck at Oskar Blues in Lyons. Packed room, and everyone groovin’ … hellofa night! Here’s some video of Euforquestra’s set and something from Judge Roughneck.
I don’t have a news and notes segment to share this week, sorry. I left it on my office computer. I also do not have a video of the wee pick. I did not find one. I was excited to debut a new release from the Greeley based Silver & Gold this week. Their recording was sent to me by a fan, who heard my show on KUNC. Props to the fan for doing that. This is a solid “new” addition to the Greeley/NoCO music scene. Check out a review in Greeley’s Bandwagon. Also new this week are a couple of really excellent new jazz recordings from the Ben Markley/Clint Ashlock Quintet, and the Dana Landry Trio (also from Greeley).
