Great gig last night at Molly. We were booked as James Woodman trio, I guess, but given two are Tilt, I'll consider it that. Dave couldn't do it so a ring around came up with Micah Heathwood, currently a student at ANU. What a great outcome. Perhaps a bit loud, primarily from my kicker amp but Micah went along with it. Driving jazz, but with a rock presence and commitment. Plenty of willing drum solos (thanks, Micah!) Great fun. Micah suggested some tunes and we introduced him to a few he didn't know, including some cute waltzes, not least Bluesette, and one original from James. The crowd was good and responded at least to a few tunes, perhaps later in the night. My family and friends were there looking all the world like Leonardo's Last supper. Not that bad, guys. Whatever, a great night. Thanks to Micah.
James Woodman (piano) joined Eric Pozza (bass) and Micah Heathwood (drums) at Molly, nominally as Tilt Trio or James Woodman trio or other.
Thanks to Annabel for the band pic and to Wikimedia Commons for the Giampietrino copy of Leonardo's Last supper (ca 1520).
