Music notes from Little Rhody: Band practice in Woonsocket Monday night, with Bill the new keyboard player. Self-employed piano tuner. Has four pianos & an organ in one not-so-large room on 2nd floor. Plus dog & 2 flying cats. Not sure how this is done.
We talked about how quite a bit of complex-sounding music actually stems from hands finding the easiest way to make the chords. Bill's wife sang us a poem she had written about the man recently arrested in a supermarket there for licking a woman's feet.
