Brian had expressed a desire to play a few Latin / Jazz numbers, so we organised a special Latin Jam session in The Shed.
The always positive Ken, and the usual “I’ll be in it” from Chris had us sitting pretty for a great afternoon. Then Ken announced he had been chatting with Mark Bolsius, one of the very best keyboards players on the NSW South Coast, and that Mark was keen to join in.
The particular combo that played on the afternoon ( Mark, Brian, Ken and Chris ) had never played as a unit before, and they didn’t play through any song twice, so it was very much an unrehearsed jam.
Neil had made some critical discoveries about the recording set up, enabling us to capture some songs without interrupting the flow of the jam. The first song ready for posting, Autumn Leaves , appears on the right hand side of the Latest News page of the blog, under the heading “The Shed Giveth “ . Click on it to have a listen.
Mark – welcome to the PBGB Family !! Thanks very much for coming to The Shed. We loved having you and look forward to seeing you again some day ! A brilliant performance sir.
