Class is in session
I hate to jump on stage with a complex mindset ready to go and something as simply tasteful as blues can be tainted with my nouveau-jazziness that I’ve slaves over to even pseudo-master lol. What the cats may not understand is that right now me executing the simple beauty that is blues is like me executing dance moves in a club…it doesn’t come naturally thus I’m uncomfortably thinking about my next move…it may be the norm for some but for me that’s not what i strive for, but I’ll do it if needed.
After the show has ended they talked to me about going up there, and though they understood that i approached the scene in a studious manner, but there’s a time to take a risk…like my mentor said “if this world class artist is asking why you’re not up there, it’s not about filling up space (as I thought wholeheartedly) but because he sees a good musician who can hone her skills in practice (like I don’t already). The guy cares and sees that i’m not bulshi**in’. Lesson learned.
Simma down and simplify
