With ten more Psalms to go in as many days, you would think I would have my nose to the grindstone. I do. But I also can’t resist chasing a rabbit trail or two. In this case, the rabbit trail is a new jazz tune we tried out last night at Euro Bistro.
Earlier in the week, I was drinking my afternoon coffee when this little opening lick popped into my head. Pretty soon I was spinning it out into different pitches and keys until it became this delightfully twisty little song that would be at home surrounded by jazz standards like “Have You Met Miss Jones.” Indeed, Euro Bistro patrons didn’t seem to think anything was amiss when we snuck this new tune in one of our sets.
