Members csm Posted January 15, 2010 Members Share Posted January 15, 2010 ... because I've been asked to play a gig with some VERY SERIOUS avant-garde jazz guys in a band led by bassist Jair-Rohm Parker Wells and featuring, on guitar, none other than ex-Bowie sideman Reeves Gabrels (whom I know from his Tin Machine stint with David). What's more, Jair-Rohm has never heard me, but I was recommended by John Sinclair (poet, activist and ex-MC5 manager), with whom Jair-Rohm and I have both played, but never together. Apparently the gig is gonna be 'ambient new-age jazz', and they want me to sit in as a guest and play some Delta-style resonator slide in a collective improv, but it's major jump-in-at-the-deep-end stuff, because they're heavy-duty jazz peeps and I'm just a blues primitive. I'll be several light-years away from my comfort zone and the potential for embarrassment and disaster is nothing short of massive. I'm just gonna request a long drone in A and hope for the best. So send me some major mojo for the night of Feb 3 (London time), and if any London forumites are anywhere near the Vortex jazz bar in Stoke Newington, London N16, c'mon along and keep fingers, toes and all available digits crossed. I'll be the VERY NERVOUS guy with the leather jacket and the gold resonator. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
