The Swing Memories gig season has slowed a bit (just three in May, one coming up in June) but we still have a good time. Here's some photos and a recording from our last gig this past Wednesday. A mellow tune with some nice solos: "Here's That Rainy Day" (Not that we get much of that in Phoenix).
Pam Wolfe--who plays both Alto and Tenor with us depending on what we need--is a real funny lady sometimes. Anyway, she saw a tie and thought of me. It's a piano tie that actually plays (kinda, don't expect any fast scales on it). It's cute. Naturally I put it on as soon as she gave it to me and I wore it for the rest of the gig. We're playing today for a Memorial Day event and I'd wear it to our gig today but we're supposed to be wearing Hawaiian shirts. Maybe I'll still wear it. I wonder if it goes with Hawaiian flowers? :-)
By the way, I wouldn't mind if it actually rained today. Here's to that rainy day--that we rarely get to see.
