|Steve playing the upright bass, by J.A.Rose-Bartlett cc|
The night after a gig is....'ah'.....well, wonderful. Usually, we choose to work quietly on our farm in our garden, watch the chickens grow, listen to some new good music, take care of and know all upcoming rehearsal dates, collect needed sheet music, cook some sweet stuff, work up tunes online [I find them on YOUTUBE, Steve learns them for upcoming gigs.]
Today, Steve got on his upright bass and just relaxed.....'ah'. I love that deep, rich sound of the upright bass. Reminds me of the dark, smooth satin-y taste of chocolate....somehow?..weird...huh?
Last night's BARTLETT ON BASS Jazz Jam at UNCLE SAMs BAR AND GRILL
...with DENNY FOREMAN
/guitar/vocals, STEPHEN PARTON/
drums and STEVE BARTLETT/bass went well....but, we did get home late...I went to bed right away....Steve needs to 'unwind'...and listened to a CD on playing more on the upright bass....you know...tricks of the trade and stuff. It was about morning when I heard him get into bed beside me. Only a few hours sleep and he's up again...playing the upright,...our coffee's on and breakfast ready...'WOW...what a man!', I think to myself, as I get outta bed.
