The Black & Blue Orkestre has completed a new track, called Slide On. It’s kind of a funk, gospel rocker that started as a semi-instrumental. Our bass player Grog suggested I write some real lyrics and it ends up she was right. I played some guitar on this one; Will played a lot more.
I enjoy this trans-global collaboration. I’ve met Grog once. We’ve never been in a studio together. Will has been over to my apartment for an hour and actually recorded some guitar for Will Been Done, another track of ours, but he started over when he got back to London and we threw it all out. Interesting what happens when ego simply disappears.
I’m in the middle of directing an episode of a dramatic series for network television. The cast is amazing. The writing is very strong. This one’s a little different from the other ones I’ve done. It’s kind of like a high-speed bullet train, sleek, taut and absolutely no room for error. Needless to say the pressure is intense. But, I feel good and am having a great time. Won’t come up for air until November 23.
By then Black & Blue might have an EP together.
