Not really sure where this will go, but it’s exciting to have some different cats to play with and doing the stuff I’ve been dreaming about for a long time. Two of my good friends, Jim Spake and Chris Parker have been rehearsing with me, off and on for a couple of years, but we’ve never done a gig. I figured it was time to change that, so I booked one and it’s in a few weeks, so we’ve got some time to suss out the material. It’s good shit, too…we’ve got Hank Crawford, Art Blakey, Horace Silver, Monk, Herbie Hancock, Eddie Harris, Lou Donaldson, just to name a few, plus there’s some original material that we’re all bringing to the table, as well. So, I’m very excited. Parker, Sluppick & Spake. It’s catchy, right?
