Shufflemonster’s ‘Ye Olde Band Box Blues’|
Actually it’s not so bad in here – all in how you look at it---
True, we appear about last ‘on the list’ --- but that could be interpreted to mean that all of the illustrious names preceding us--are our opening act--!
It’s really quite cozy in here – kind of a turn-key operation – no schlepping – an easy gig – No one seems to mind if I step out of the box a little [Shufflemonster Grooves on the irony of all that] - and, no one tells me how to play --- I can even be Spontaneous, Interactive – Creative – and Free-Spirited ----
---Which enables moi to bring some upbeat – optimistic- Good-Natured Fun and Positive Karma into the mix –
---just like REAL LIVE MUSIC - like “back in the day” ---,
---just like GrooveQuest performs now on each gig !!!!
[ --- Here’s one small musical clue – (for anyone curious enough to tune in) --The 25+/- years I’ve spent transcribing, annotating, analyzing, phenomenologizing Elvin Jones’ drumset rolls, polymeters, triplet rhythms, and spiritual impact may account for some of the Exuberant Karmic Abundance generated on each and every GrooveQuest GIG !!!! ]
