Duo at Oglethorpe
David Ellington and I played an afternoon duo gig at Oglethorpe University Saturday afternoon. I'm not sure what the occasion was. We were background music for some type of reception in the student center (which is beautiful, by the way).
Special thanks to the student who, with a mouth full of food, leaned across the organ to tell Ellington we needed to stop at 4:30 so her boss could do something. He spent the break wiping that off.
Also thank you to Mr. Enthusiasm, whose dragging claps on two and four almost brought one tune to a halt. Later on when he yelled for Mr. Magic from across the room, I knew we were in trouble, and soon after that when he sat down in front of us a sang Oye Como Va at full volume while I was soloing, I almost screamed. I bet your teenage son was really proud of you.
Anyway...most of this is really good. Check it out.
