It had been a depressing week for me, so I didn't want to go to band practice. I did, though. I felt obligated since I am the only bass player. However, when I got there, I felt like playing when I heard the horns, piano and drums warming up.
This semester we are working on some new songs. Tonight we practiced Dreamsville, Corcovado, and L-O-V-E.
I was able to sight read the music pretty well, and was pleased with my ability to do so. I started reading music one year ago this month. I am becoming, more and more, a "literate musician."
I really dig the song L-O-V-E. It has been recorded by Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, Michael Buble and many others. Don't remember it? Listen to Buble in the video embed below. (Please excuse the misspellings and such -- apparently the vid was made by someone for whom English is a second language).
