While I was making dinner this evening, I was listening to Lester Young playing "D.B. Blues" and "Back to the Land," and I was thinking that I'd give just about anything to be able to play some blues like that: I'm mean really play it, for people, with a band that sounded that good. But then I thought: even if I were able to get it together enough to do a passable job at that kind of playing, there'd be nobody to play it with. I've never heard a live blues band that would play that quietly, and leave that much space, for that kind of playing. It may be happening somewhere, but no place I've ever been!
