As I thought, I’ve found it hard to blog consistently – daily life is so engaging. I play trumpet in a streetband (again), and I’ve been writing parts for the brass so we can play Zorba’s dance, to show solidarity with people in the same boat. First time I’ve transcribed something for bouzouki to horns! Yes, I know Herb Alpert did, but he also had the help of a bouzouki section at intervals.
Literally true. I’m heading to my home in Norfolk, where I’ve got a gorgeous Bechstein upright. Where I live most of the time, in Gijón, Asturias, Spain, I’ve got a little Yamaha keyboard, but tho it’s useful, it never tempts me to play it. The real piano almost plays itself, it has such a lovely sound.
