Back to basics

I came across this band last night.

They played jazz standards and did it well. I really felt like playing and so (somewhat cheekily) asked if I could get up and play with them.

We did The Way You Look Tonight and Cheek to Cheek and I was in heaven.

They didn’t speak English but we managed to communicate and it was everything that playing music should be. Fun, energetic, passionate.

Sometimes it’s good to get back to basics. Just play.
