Catamount Community Radio - December 18, 2016

A Christmas show yesterday (I'm writing a day after the fact).

I am for the most part done with my semester. I played my piano recital on Saturday (It was OK, "On the Sunny Side of the Street," "In Walked Bud," and a funk arrangement of "Up on the Roof Top" called "Fat Man on the Roof"). All my grades are in, I have put the grade grubbers in their places ... So, I should be able to relax now. But somehow I can't. I have this feeling in my heart, or my spleen or my liver, or somewhere, that I have some responsibility to attend to. I may need a few more days to adjust to my new freedom, to quit worrying about practicing or grading, or classes, or students. Last night I went to hear my friend Tyler play jazz at a cocktail bar ... and unfortunately, I was unable to enjoy myself. I'm an unsocial freak. I felt like going home. And when I got home, I wasn't happy there either. I felt like going to my office. But it was 11:30 at night. What is it they say? First-world problems. But I have plans. Read the Mingus bio on the couch with my dog at my feet. A couple days of that and I'll be in the groove.

I played Sherwin Sleeves' "The Christmas Skater" again this year. I dig it. It's a 45:00 thing, but worth the time. And a few other Christmas faves.
