Wrapping up 2011

Fresh baguette dough is rising in the kitchen as I sit here listening to Bill Evans Trio Sunday at the Village Vanguard and organize charts for my last gig with The Peck Bros of 2011. It has been a busy and productive year! This weekend I get to track B3 and clav on a friend’s record at the newly improved Bunker Studios 2.0 in Brooklyn before heading off to New Years Eve Parties. Not to shabby if I do say so myself! Maybe I’ll post some pics from the studio this weekend, but if not, Happy New Years everyone!

Summer Adventures: part 9 (heading west!)

Providence is such an easy airport. Except when it isn’t. Last time I flew out of PVD I almost missed my flight since the line at security was so long. Today I arrived the recommended 2 hours early for a “peak travel time flight.” I checked under 10 minutes. Oh well, hurry up and wait. That is the story of today…I’ll have time for another update during my layover in Chicago. Though tgi Fridays isn’t too bad…

The flight to Chicago was uneventful. I was amongst a family with two young kids who had gone to the Newport Folk Festival for the week. The kids were very well behaved. My layover in Chi Town was just under an hour, then it was back on a plane and off to Seattle. I hope my bag makes it!

I finally started reading “Paris to the Moon” by Adam Gopnik. It is a memoir about the move of a writer and his family to Paris in the mid-nineties. I have chuckled out loud several times! Someone left it on the book exchange in the faculty room…I’m glad I picked it up!
