Play less.

That's what I'm telling myself from now on. I've written before about playing rests, but I've been falling off the wagon. The other night I had a great conversation with a friend that plays some great tenor saxophone about this very thing. We talked about how Miles and Dave Liebman would just lay out for 4 or 8 bars at a time and just let the rhythm section play.

My trio has a show this Monday at Rose Live Music in Williamsburg. I intend to record it and hopefully share some of the tracks with all of you. We'll see if I'm able to execute.

Speaking of the trio, I've nearly finished the new tune and will finish blogging about that process soon. It's coming together pretty nicely.
