I Am the Blues

I received this unexpected video gift in my inbox yesterday.   A guy named Paul Anders is playing the cajon while I’m doing a song I wrote called I Am the Blues on a Yamaha electronic piano.  The beginning was chopped off, but I’m posting it anyway, since it’s the first thing I’ve posted musically other than solo piano since having miraculously been resurrected from the Grave of Homelessness after twelve years of turning over in it.  

You can click on the song title above for the complete lyrics.  By the way, this is from last Friday’s Open Mike at the One World Cafe, and the person who videoed it was Brandy Sullivan, the co-owner of that venue.   

I’ll post another solo piano piece, as usual, on Friday.   In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this “snippet.”  :)

A little bit goes a long, long way.

      P.S. @swo8 — You can use it if you want, Leslie. Your harp would sound sweet on this kind of thing. Just spell my name right. ;)

        Thanks Andy. I’ll try to get around to it but I have half a dozen things on the creative agenda at the moment.

        I hear that, Leslie. I’m swamped right now too. Just wanted to make sure I extended the courtesy, one musician to another. :)
