Just Confirmed a 3 date tour (!!) *** in April with great musicians Tim Daisy Drums (US) Ksawery Wójciński Bass (PL) and myself on saxes.
A simple 3 day / 3 city affair, forming geometrically a nice triangle shape on the map...
Getting such gigs becomes increasingly hard as time goes on, getting such gigs with some form of guarantee - even harder but fortunately this one has fallen into place beautifully.
Last year both ksawery and myself played with Tim when he was in Poland playing with Ken Vandermark and such fun was had by all we discussed the possibility of meeting in 2015 to continue our playing relationship.
Thanks to Tim this is now a reality and who knows maybe a recording will also surface from the shows....
*** Three dates tour (!) the reason for the exclamation marks is the use of the word tour in this context.
In former times a tour would have been 12 weeks in the USA, followed by a few days off before going onto Europe, Japan, back to the US...etc....etc
For an album cycle, in the old days of the independent rock bands I was part of, to support a new release a tour may have been spread over 2 years with more dates added (if the band was hot, hip and happening) which could increase the total amount of tour time to 3 or even 4 years...
