It was far too hot for a Saturday in the Park. So we had Lattes on a Sunday Afternoon. Well, I suppose that would be Latte singular. Brian had an Earl Grey and Jim likes his bold roast. But in any case, it was great to get the three of us together this past Sunday to work on some new material. It had been far too long since we played together, and I'm happy to say we have four new pieces well underway. Although only one of them was my selection, sometimes I just have to go with the flow. This is definitely outside the box for me!
Can I just say, I never thought I would sing anything by Stevie Wonder? Sometimes I hear the "ping" of the Bliss email come in and I think to myself, "What hair brained idea has Brian got now?". Some days there seems to be a steady stream of emails with ideas for new material. The latest one though, was followed up with a recording - Brian had decided to go ahead and learn the piece. This does happen - one or two of us goes ahead on a leap of faith and learns the piece in hopes that the others will come along for the ride. I'd heard the song before, but it definitely wasn't something I knew off the top of my head. And definitely wasn't something I ever envisioned myself performing. I'm curious to see how it all pulls together. Once we've got something more polished I'll have to post it for some feedback.
Hope you've all had a great Monday and that we see each other soon. Our live dates have been updated, and a couple of scheduling changes may mean we can squeeze a few more in before the end of the year.
Until next time, my friends!
