Jam – 2010-05-05 – Carroll’s

This was a Wednesday night jam for us this week.  The weather was beautiful and there was no reason not to have a good jam.  Lou Reed was rehearsing next door and even though he wasn’t a guest, we shall treat him as such.  The only other guest we had for the night was Scott Bayer who was all hyped up playing a mean bongo.  He did manage to contact Carol on the cell phone and we played a Werewolves of London for her.

Short of having no real guests we just had the typical 5-man rotation with me on lead, Alan on rhythm, Rich on keys, Kevin on bass and Scott on the skins.  Kevin got Carroll’s to get him a different amp setup tonight including a Roland JC-120 for the high end and some other amp for the lows.  He’ll have to comment on its sound compared to the normal sound he guest.  The PZM under the piano was squealing so Chris from Carroll’s put in the Beta 57 under the piano and I thought it sounded pretty good.

The real new news for the night was the introduction of my new iPad which I used in lieu of my book.  It worked very well as a PDF display showing score in very crispy and zoomable detail.  It will all be great until it spills over and cracks, like Kevin’s books fell over at least on 2 occasions throughout the night.  The artwork above was created by Kevin at the jam using one of my new iPad art apps.  There is alot of good and fun to come from that machine.

I think my hilight of the night that I can remember was the Same Thing.  I like mine and Alan’s leads on that thing.  The big mistake for me was to attempt the Sing Me Back Home.  I was no where close on that thing as it was a total disaster.  The rest of the night was hit and miss bt at least we always have next week to hit or miss again.  Until then, Freak Out.

    I’ve been playing this on piano over the past week, since I discovered in a Wings PDF in my iPad and after seeing the Fab Faux play it like 2 years ago. I just discovered this video of Paul playing Uncle Albert acoustic in a room 2007 to like 20 people with them singing with him Really cool stuff.

    That is just straight-up embarassing, TheGind.
    Please remove that ignorance. You are better than that. C’mon!!

    I apologize for the misread on Paul. I guess I thought Paul had been working on playing righty and he had been using Grecian Formula and been working out. Anyway I guess I guess I could remove it but it’s now part of history.

    Larry, I suspected that video was not Paul judging from his voice and the curiously blurred image when both the foreground and background are sharp. When I looked up the video on YouTube a commenter pointed out that “This bloke is right handed”. Suspicion confirmed.
