Lately, BARTLETT's been doing lotsa music, with excellent musicians AND, I 'm at EVERY gig....'watching and listening'...for what?
Well, I'll tell ya... I'm at every gig first because I love music and it's'also 'cause I'm there for 'more'.....for the real thing or maybe some call it the 'the groove or 'being in the pocket''...when it happens everyone knows it. It's a feel kinda or, it's when everything is happening just right. That's how I describe it, anyway.
Many times I've seen musicians look and play like 'cardboard'....they know the right notes BUT don't feel the music or something. The music is 'lifeless', they are NOT focused or present with the music. BARTLETT loves music and it shows in his performance..
AND, then there's 'over-playing'...or trying too hard. If Steve's nervous...or worried about the stage...the equipment or something, he has trouble just relaxing and playing. So, there's a middle ground that we're looking for that's just right.
Anyway, right now Steve is playing with awesome musicians that know their stuff. Come out and support them....you'll have a great time AND see and hear real music. extreme music. Jan
