Our friend Jerod is a real go-getter. A while back we heard him playing with Claude and Ola Aldous at Jernabi. On this particular night he was performing at the world-famous Buccaneer Lounge in Canton, NY with Bird and Doyle Dean. I’d had a couple of beers and, since I couldn’t really hear anyone else at our table (an important detail), decided to pull out my phone and record some of their sounds. I got a couple minutes of mid-jam jams and hit stop. I looked up and saw quizzical faces across the table. Our friends, it seems, were sharing birth stories and thought I was recording them. I couldn’t hear them and you can’t hear them on the recording either. Oh well.
