Band Log – 2/19/05

This is Outpost log 2/19/05 La Gringa

after a, shall we say, poignant pause…replete sans angst & loss of vision……
{& 2 amazing reviews of U.S.D.A.*BLUES/”it don’t smell funny yet!”…….some
income would B nice however}……. an independent label {ZEVISGIRL,N.Y.C.}
approached me 2 do a CD of standards. so,….this next CD is a Jazz CD ,sorta…..
we R calling this particular constellation of musicians BARRIO NORTE,,, the CD
will B called “Dark Avenues of the Heart”. Yes, I know, I’m kinda doin’that sedate thing….
um……………..nothing like being ripped from the jaws of failure by an
approaching Indie Label financing complete artistic freedom…..I need 2 catch my breath…….
…..Chico’s still in China, Phat’s back in Europe & God alone knows where theGrip is…….
…….but Lobo is still w/ me, 2 my great relief!, as well as David Rozenblatt on traps&percussion,
Nando Michelin on piano & Esperanza Spaulding on upright bass.
& I am singing w/ Ivan, this kid from
Puerto Rico……he has a voice that makes the girls scream……..I AM NOT KIDDING!
it’s kinda amusing actually. I found him @ Critical Breakdown 7 months ago…& now
we R writing songs 2gether. the Life is strange……huh!?…..Lieblings!
