Played another gig with Thelonious Punk last week, third instrument, and the third time I’ve had to learn the set, in as many gigs; I was on tenor sax this time and I told Ralphy I’m sticking with it; he’s such a brilliant mercurial soloist that I need to be on top of my game just to keep him in sight, and I can’t keep switching. It spreads me too thin.
So Bb* tenor saxophone it is.
The good news is the management of The Experience, where we have our fortnightly residency, has offered us an all-nighter on the bank holiday, plus free beer.
Are they insane??
