Back to something resembling normal. Whatever that might mean.

Nasser, in his lead up to my show, played some Kenny G, which I took as a challenge, to try to find some decent sax playing. Not too difficult really; I pulled out Paul Butterfield’s In My Own Dream, which has a great sax solo.

Add in a request for some Elvis, a little bit of funk from Sly Stone and James Brown, and then some blues, and you have tonight’s show.

For the last few weeks I’ve been in the USofA; the primary reason was to attend the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.

Along the way, I visited Memphis, taking in the Stax and Rock and Soul Museums, as well as Sun Studios, and I also managed to get up to Seattle and take in the Experience Hendrix Music Project.

All of these were great musical experiences for me, and in many ways, it was taking me back to my musical heart; almost to my whole reason for living.

So, for tonight’s show, I started with a little bit of New Orleans music, and just let it roll from there.
