What happens at Song Night at my house?

A typical night was last April 12, 2007. Dave Mason and Steve Osburn came over. Dave played bongos and Oz picked up my fretless Fender Bass.

Then we improvised new songs, which I recorded and promptly forget about, as I’ve been too distracted to transcribe the discs. Here’s one tune:

It’s good – we should write a lyric. » Read the rest of this entry «

Song Night

A cold February night in Ann Arbor. It’s Song Night at my house, and we’re just getting warmed up.

On this night, February 21, 2008, I was very fortunate to have Oz – Steve Osburn – on bass, Dave Mason on bongos, Jeff Kupperman on violin. I played the piano and sang a bit.

Here’s what happened….

Is there a song in here? With this one, I don’t necessarily think so. It’s nice, but it doesn’t beg to be revisited.

Sometimes at these Song Night sessions, a Song is born. Sometimes, the Process IS the Product.

That’s OK too.
