The view from the stage at Breeze's

The view from the stage at Breeze's

OK, so look… I’ve become infused with the ‘soon come-ness’ of Jamaica. I came to the lobby of the resort here where the internet is the strongest. I had every intention of posting last night’s set list. When I opened my computer, I realized that I didn’t do the set list here… I did it old school long hand in my lyric book. Well… the book is back in our room… I am here… so I guess the set list will have to wait… maybe until tomorrow. Here’s the important stuff though. There was Jack Casady, Barry Mitterhoff, myself of course… but also Larry Campbell and the ever lovely Teresa Williams. Larry played every song with us except for the first one… True Religion. To play with my usual suspects is always a blessing… to add Larry to the mix is always a treat… when we get Teresa too… well, what more can one say?

We closed our show with Teresa preaching to the tune of Rev. Davis’ Keep Your Lamps Trimmed And Burning. Of course… as always, she brought the house down with this one. As an encore… the boys and I pulled back with a (if you can imagine) reflective version of the great Jelly Roll Morton’s, Whining Boy Blues.

Paul Barrere just stopped by to say hey… big thanks to him and Little Feat for inviting us to the party… Gabe Ford, Little Feat’s drummer just stopped by with his small son and said Hey too… wow… all the stars are here… anyway…

Good times indeed!

Somebody's got to do it!

Somebody's got to do it!

Well… life here at the Breezes Resort is pretty much perfect… I think I’ll hit the beach for a while…

Tough job, but…

    Im pretty sure that Jorma was most impressed with Carlos way back when at woodstock but Alvin Lee came and kicked some serious hind end,it was mentioned here so my 2 cents again.2 sides of the water,but to me JK and AL really got me on a track of digging the 6 string..from a chordal point of view..Nite. nite

    Alvin Lee: a great performer, especially at Woodstock:
    “Going Up The Country”

    I was there during my 11th birthday (long story).
    Alvin remembered meeting me previously in NYC, when Ten Years played the Fillmore East.
    (He thought I was Bill Graham’s daughter, or niece or something.)

    Woodstock was many things to many people,
    to me it was a rockin’ (if somewhat muddy and messy) 11th Birthday party: August 17, 1969.
    My mom was in a NYC hospital, at the time. She passed 10 days after Woodstock.
    She was glad to hear that I had a Happy Birthday at Woodstock.

    Here I thought I’d beat Barbara to the punch re: the addition of Larry and Teresa being a great addition, but will happily concur with her … it must have been a special set!

    Speaking of Rev. Davis, just heard a radio interview with Bob Weir last month where he mentioned you tipped him off about a well known way to get a good lesson from him in Queens by bringing over a couple cigars, brandy, and a “slick young philly” (in Bob’s words) starting at 3:28:

    Hope the rest of your stay in the sun/beaches is fun!

    Not to step on anyone’s toes……..just saw where Alvin Lee passed away.
    A truly gifted blues guitarist. Time marches on.

    Have fun in JA (hey, those initials look familiar), Jorma! The view from the stage reminds me of when Tuna (and Roy B) did a wonderful benefit show on the beach in Key West some 20 years ago.
