And so I returned this night to JVs in Falls Church (my former home) with the most excellent David McKittrick to perform at Daryl JR Cline's Songwriter Showcase. If I sound a little loud, it's because I couldn't help but notice that a few of the performers who had gone on before me -- and to whom I gave every bit of polite attention -- were hunkered in a booth conversing noisily, so I thought I'd let them know someone besides themselves was onstage. I'm considerate that way, see.
Not a bad set, considering it has been over 9 months since I've performed live, and as usual Dave's lead playing was impeccable. Check out his work on "Into the Night" and you'll see what I mean. Also, for the first time in over 30 years I performed "Hard to Tell" in front of an audience, specially dedicated to Ken Cadmus, to let him know I'm thinking about him. Feel better, brother.
