Working Up Tunes....BARTLETT ON BASS Jazz Jam's Going to Spain? ALL Aboard....CHICK COREA

by J.A.Rose cc
'Ole! Next stop Spain? STEVE BARTLETT loves CHICK COREA and has been waiting to play one of his very favorite tunes by Corea...namely 'Spain'..WHAT? So, no one knows the song, 'cause it's scary and really hard.....BUT, Steve being a genius musician, and really brave, laughs at hard....So, now loading at gate 3, it's BARTLETT ON BASS Jazz Jam doing , well,....'All aboard, for.... 'Espania' [Spain] stuff...huh?
I'm sending all the guys links to the video that I've posted here...WOW! This'll be fun. Can't wait 'til tomorrow, Monday, at UNCLE SAMs BAR AND GRILL, in Spanaway, WA., that's July 25th, 'round boarding time....7pm. This wonderful jazz jam goes until 10pm, at least....sometimes no one wants to stop and so...who knows??'s later. O.K?
Uncle Sam's address is 16003 Pacific Ave. in Spanaway by the way.
AND, who's gonna be this jazz? There'll be DENNY FOREMAN/jazz guitar, STEPHEN PARTON/drums, HAL MERRILL/pedal steel jazz guitar and the 'funk king' himself...STEVE BARTLETT/bass.
Here's a video of 'Spain' by Chick Corea and a link to 'Love Castle' by Corea. Jan

BARTLETT Playing Bass in Our Garden?....Really? I Was Almost Fooled....You?

by J.A.Rose cc
As you all know, I am so lucky to have so much time on my hands...and feet...and face.
Well, 'face' reminds me of something really cool...namely EATIN' stuff! Lotsa folks like food and I'm no exception.
I like eating food...specially from our garden.
Steve loves to take care of our little farm, when he's not playing the bass. He plays music in our garden too,while he tastes a little of this and that. Some things I never ever even get to see...BUT, I know he's been sampling (spell?)....he's picking green stuff out ta his teeth, and doing it kinda snicky-like (spell? again)..a sure sign of garden goodness going down his hatch.
Steve's wonderful though, and really shares most of that stuff very well, and I know it's, for example, this morning...he canned 7 quarts of plums from one of our trees..guess he couldn't eat them all...and he said there's gonna be more plums soon too.
Here's some pictures. O.K? Jan

PHOTO INFO.  TOP PHOTO; Upright bass in the garden, he's picking goodies when I'm not looking...he thinks.(wink). Jan

2. berry photo: A few weeks ago....raspberries, from our garden...Steve canned them too..and jam. WOW! What a guy. Steve's picture. Jan
3. Hungry Baby Photo: URI, my grandson...(1 year old) likes food too. It must be in his genes, I don't think it's just a temporary phase that he's going through...Grandma Jan
4. Hungry Lady Photo: My daughter likes to eat's in our genes guys, we can't help it!...really! Jan
5. Attack Chicken Photo:Attack Chicken is always on duty in our garden and on the farm...see? Jan 
6. Steve Playing the Shovel Photo: Steve playing the shovel?....yeah really? .getting a snack, I'm thinking now....I was almost tricked! Jan
