NAIL (acoustic) – one way to be

Morning all –

Having my morning coffee offers me a few minutes to reflect on our show at Jusitns last night. An all acoustic show, David Ruffels, Nadav Snir-Zelniker & I are reaching new levels of telepathy. For me, not having been a leader of a purely acoustic Jazz Trio for very long, it’s quite heartening. It’s what we dream about…..

The night before we played at the SUNY Purchase Conservatory of Dance Musician’s Concert, as an electric band (with guest guitarist Doug Munro). And although I was looking forward to that show perhaps a little bit more, it was a little bit of a disapointment for me – technical difficulties, problems with sound.

Perhaps it’s because my expectations are so high. The technological aspects of the electric band provide more opportunities for things to go wrong. None of that is present in the acoustic trio (of course); it’s just me and my (questionable??) piano technique. But where it’s always been a little daunting, the acoustic trio is really beginning to take on a life of it’s own. We should be back at Justin’s in a few months; and as my confidence grows, I will be less & less afraid to actully book this version of NAIL.

The next step? Combine the acoustic and electric concepts. We’re going to try that at our Hofstra university show in 2 weeks! Stay tuned – should be interesting.

Love you all – thanks!
