I am sending emails to labels to see if someone can help me reach more listeners with Decorating Time. I’m also giving lessons over the internet, practicing, making tracks for commercical purposes and playing occasionally with masks and social distancing as much as possible. Here I am on a happier day with Kassem Williams and Butler Knowles, at Legit Biz in GSO.
A crowdfund page for Decorating Time the forthcoming record by the James Gilmore trio (Butler Knowles -b Kassem Williams – d) is up and running. Click here to learn about the project and preorder the record.
Had a great time playing at Revival 1869 last Friday with Kevin Beardsley and Kassem Williams. I’m calling that particulat incarnation the ‘Work Trio’. We played soul and funk covers with a jazzy twist, lots of Sco, some Jill Scott, Sam Cooke etc., it was fun and I hope to play more with this group soon!
