A week in a musical life

It's Friday, December 7th.  Dave Brubeck died this week 1 day shy of his 92nd birthday, and I've been obsessed with the song "Charade," Henry Mancini's composition from the movie of the same name with Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn, among other.  My daughter Lily and I got into an incredible recording of it by Bobby Darin, last weekend.  Together we learned it.  It woke me up last week one morning at 4:30 am and wouldn't stop in my head.  Also Skylark's Wildflower, beautifully done by New Birth.  A tune that was a hit when I was 5, and got buried deep in my bones.  It came on my ipod recently and was like revelation for me.  I've begun working on getting charts for both of them for my gigs next week.    This past Tuesday I went to the jam at Sandaga and sang "Makin' Whoopie," Ray Charles style.  It was well received, and as always, it was nice to see many of my music friends there.

Wow,the Brett Laquercia Group played at Glenn Beck's Christmas party for his company Mercury Radio Arts tonight!  It was an incredible experience and one that I intuitively feel will be a springboard

Awesome night at the Balcony Club last night for Halloween 2014 with Shelton Summons on Keys, Ethan Worland on Drums and Chip Davis on Bass, splitting the duties with Walter Nelson.  Also a thank you
