Playing with Arlington Houston

Friday, September 29th, 2006 by

I played at the Downtown restaurant with Arlington Houston tonight. This was the first straight ahead jazz gig that I’ve had since I started practicing so much more. I didn’t know most of the tunes, but thanks to my sight reading ability, and to the fact that I listened to the tunes during the day of the gig, I did a great job! I felt confident, free and very connected to the music. I feel like I was given an insight into what I’m capable of if I continue to practice at the pace I’d set. This performance was so much better than what I had been doing, and that’s after only a few weeks of focused, extended practice. I can only imagine where I’d be if I kept up a 15+ hour regiment for over a year! Wow! Wish me luck….
