1.5. - With "Herzog" as opener we were tight right form the start on Saturday, even though
it was quite a loud tune straight away. Our own impression was backed later by audience feedback:
The gig has been a top notch performance by everyone. The quintet line-up was well acclaimed, what will
inspire us for future sax-flute-arrangements. Only lowlight of the evening: two guests losing
composure because of a few Euros contribution to music. All the same, it takes all sorts to make a world.
A big thank you to the majority of the audience, you were amazing! Honorable mention goes to the crowd
alongside the bar in particular. :-)
10.4. - Since Aron is back in town and yesterday Wolfram came down from Regensburg,
that meant for us: orchestra rehearsal. We brooded about the potential program for our gig
on 29th, including a new composition. First impressions: "ambitious harmonies and rhythms",
"shouldn't be played at the beginning", "no, not a typical first song". Aside from that, we
decided to skip the usual jazz ballad this time. Time and space is going to be used for
bubbling (sic! Thomas... ) arrangements in the line-up with two soloists.
