Re: and what is the pay . . .?
You actually sound like me, I've been saying this to the band for a while now.
We are starting to write more and develop our own take on things. As well, we need a better demo. When that happens we can think about The Knitting Factory or maybe even alst night at one of the bigger clubs.
Several of the tunes we do are more through composed pieces like Birdland, Phase Dance or Spain. it's really hard to find new ground with them. They are also crowd pleasers. But we ave really found ground with working through other Weather Report tunes, which really exist as bare bones on the recordings and seem to lend themselves for branching out.
Things went well today. I think I may have us some steady work for the winter.
thanks for the feedback!
