Quartet Mama Buzz 10-20-2006

It was a friday evening and I played a few sets in a quartet with Ben Bracken, Jacob Lindsey and Ava Mendoza. Two electric guitars and two winds. Ben played tabletop prepared guitar with a large array of devices to get lots of sounds. Ava played in a more melodic style, branching into the sound world at times. Jacob brought his Bb, Ab, Bass and Contrabass clarinets – lots of range and he really knows how to play each. I brought my alto, Eb clarinet and Bass clarinet – so we had many options in terms of sound and range. I’m getting pretty used to playing at Mama Buzz – though it’s a pretty modest place to play at, usually there are enough listeners that you can concentrate on playing the music and know that the audience will be attentive and appreciative.
