hi greg, this "difficult jazz" should right up your street.

hope you enjoy it.
nice clip, looks a doddle to play!

Greg said...

Hey i thought you'd like it :) How about we start an ensemble, quintet or something?

Cover looks great too, looks like my rainy afternoon just got a whole lot sunnier!

Thanks a mill Katonah

btw: if you have an iphone get the theraminator its a riot especially on the train/tube with commuters... Cabbaged a few heads recently. 1 person thought there cat stuck under the train... i know i know 38 going on 8 but funny though!

the band thing sounds like a winner
count me in.
the thing with this sort of stuff is doesn't matter if your any good or not !?! ;-)

Greg said...

Exactly!!! bloody hell just done a quick scout on hurdy gurdies (not sure on the plural) Anyway check it out from eBollocks:

A good all original French Hurdy Gurdy in playable condition after a professional set up. Good gut strings. Toneweel moves well. One wooden stopper inside the keyboard is missing. Measurements: - total length without handle 26 inches - upper bout 7 3/4 inches - middle bout 6 3/8 inches - lower bout 10 1/8 inches - lowest rim 3 1/2 inches - highest rim 4 1/2 inches - total hight 7 1/2 inches

A snip at $3,500 ex Shipping. Almost as much as this lp cost??? may need to re think — methinks?

Re thought. how about we make our own instruments out of everyday ordinary utensils found lying round the home? i bagsy paper and comb!

still doesn'tt matter if your crap or not (manage expectations) - lets do it!

:)

Great share Katonah, I've always been a big fan of Polish jazz. The Rhodes work here is sublime.
