Matt Otto is in town. He’s here from Kansas City to participate in the LAJC MeMoWee Fest this weekend, and I’m really looking forward to playing with his quintet on Saturday night.
I’m also happy to add that Matt will be joining my trio on Tuesday night for the Blue Whale jam session. Consider this an informal start to the festival. I think there will be a number of LAJC members there that night and it should be a lot of fun.
Last time out we were encouraging people to bring tunes to read (emphasis on the word ‘read’ as in ‘readable’). I think we can try it again, so if you bring a tune, you can jump to the front of the jam session wait list. How’s that?
As a teaser, here’s a bootleg of a tune from a gig we did last time Matt was in town:
