So, the Organ based group I was so excited about imploded after only several months and only two gigs, super bummer,… Probably the best explanation is “Jimmy quit, Jody got married”, Haha,… (Brian Adams summer of 69′ for you ‘young-ins’)
Well anyway, Paul (Bass) and I are trudging forward as a trio under the Orange Peel band name (for now). We’re sill doing a mix of Jazz, Soul Jazz and some funk, we think of it as The Orange Peel Funky Jazz Trio (maybe at some point we’ll be able to lure an Organist to join us 🙂
We had a great gig this past Saturday at Cafe Royale in SF, thanks to all who were there rooting us on with the great enthusiastic support!
(I’ll try to post sound sounds from the gig soon)
Hopefully, we’ll do it again soon.
We’re also playing at the Birdland Jazzista Social Club in Berkeley on the 28th (September) around 9pm. (Add a comment if you want to go, I can try to get you access)
Here is a tune we played on the 15th at Royale: (with a goofy video)
and here is one we played the 28th at Jazzista:
