Finished for today - now just after midnight on Sat. Our 4 sets went well today, and the crowds very receptive. My take, initially, here, was that I needed to "emphasize" the "trad" elements of my playing in order to connect with this audience. Not so. That doesn’t mean, however, that we’re not the most "modern" band. While much of the music (apart from us) is "dixieland", and much of the piano playing "barrelhouse", I’ve received enthusiastic comments with (for example) references to Brubeck. As is the case throughout this "realm", I’m learning, there are multiple (competing) "factions". Now my laptop battery is done, I’ll have to post when I get home.
