give them the bird.....

Greetings and salutations,

Many a moon has passed since last I put my fingers to a keyboard....at least to script a quick blog, for some reason blogging eludes me the way a steady lead guitarist does...sometimes around...mostly not...the Groovebirds have finally released another album making a total of four to date with more to come...we have finally found a way to keep the recording costs more streamline which helps....We carry on...and is not that the goal? Music will find a way to be heard and the playing field changes often...This last Groovebirds effort is a hat tip to what has always been my favorite genre and that is the blues....I have often tried to play strictly as a blues bassist and something always derails my efforts, almost in a laughable manner...on this last effort I have submitted 3 tradition songs to the Groovebirds mix and tried to stay in the genre exclusively...the effort was 2 original compositions and 1 cover of a favorite song of mine done by many and that was "Driving Wheel" with of course, a woman's take on it....My favorite version is Etta James of her album "blues to the bone" which was released in 2004...An amazing collection of traditional blues tunes. I'm hoping this blog finds you well and prospering as much as one can in these strange and changing times...May the force be with us all and may we live with an attitude of gratitude for what we have on this globe...Until next time, take care....Tracy Coleman...Bassist...
