Poetry, Flowers, Rhythm and Blues
The Songs of Peace, Love and Understanding fundraiser was a success, especially musically. I have a wonderful group of people to make music with at Temple Ohabei Shalom. Elsewhere the band Unclaimed Freight has two gigs coming up June 8th and 15th. June 8th we are playing the Catholic Charities Boston Spring Gala event at Blue Hills Country Club, our first experience together playing actual dinner music and actual dance music. UC is an R&B band, not a GB band, so it will be an expansion for us and I am eager for it.
At the Poetry Locksmith at Eye on Life Online Magazine we have not been idle. Last week we published poetry by Phillip A. Ellis and this week an entertaining prose and poetry collaboration between myself and frequent contributor Donal Mahoney. I hope you’ll stop by and have a look.
In the near future I am looking forward to reviving our jazz jam sessions with my Klezjam friends. I wrote a new piece for the event that I hope will produce a synergistic result. I will be sure to share any good recordings that come out of it.
