The Stumble

And the first shall be last… to paraphrase.  This was the 1st tune the guys laid down at the recording session I was filming last spring and it’s the last one I have left to post. They used the old Freddy King tune, “The Stumble” as a kind of warm up. It worked because they were hot by the end, Hadley Hockensmith guitar, Phil Driscoll keys & trumpet, Bill Maxwell drums, Michiko Hill piano, and Pee Wee Hill bass.

Once again, just as on all the other songs from this session, the guys were playing with their ears, not their eyes, since there were no charts to work from.  It was a great day in the studio with some soulful blues tracks laid down.  My only regret is that there weren’t more tunes recorded, meaning there are no songs to post from that day.  However this was so good, I have no choice but to try and convince everyone to get together again soon and make some more music.  Hopefully they all enjoyed playing together as much as we like listening to them.
