"In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is." (Yogi Berra)
(1) BILL BEARD - "HANDS"
I tend to like "portraits" that are a little off-beat (…and for that reason, I tend to really like this one!… :-)
This pic was taken by Bill Beard at the last "Jazz Lives" concert (Jazz.FM91) which took place at Koerner Hall in April, 2017.
(2) CANADIAN MUSICIAN MAGAZINE ARTICLE - "EVERY IDIOM HAS A CLAVE"
An article of mine is appearing in the September/October issue of Canadian Musician Magazine and it is about rhythm (entitled "Every Idiom Has A Clave").
Of course, you can track the article down in the Woodwinds Column of the current issue of CM or, if you are not a subscriber but you are really interested, then you can simply drop me a line and I will send you a copy in a Word file. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
(3) PATSY CLINE LIVE - "CRAZY"
Watch Patsy as she takes merely two minutes…to slay this tune! :-)
(4) SOME FORTHCOMING GIGS
The following gig listing is in DESCENDING order. And you can always find a current/updated listing at the following link:
Also, if you need - or want - any flute, alto flute or piccolo work (…or perhaps some flute/improvisation coaching…), then simply drop me a line at email@example.com.
