On this day six years ago, I dropped in on my former bandmates. I had played with them almost every Saturday morning for twenty years before moving to Tacoma. They were playing Cannonball Adderley’s “Exodus.” Nice tune, and hard!
Listening to them wrestle with Exodus helped me realize that I can play hard tunes even when I think I can’t. We can do more than we think we’re capable of.
That’s a lesson I learned again in 2020!
