House Band

We hosted my old friend Bill Horvitz and the rest of his trio last night. They're on an east coast tour that included ABC Cafe in Ithaca, and will head to Syracuse tonight. Although Bill and I occasionally work freelance jobs in tandem, we hadn't actually laid eyes on each other since he left NYC for the West Coast nearly 20 years ago.

Sadly, as sometimes happens, our home proved less than hospitable, as an owl nailed one of the two guinea fowl at about 2 AM, ripping its head off and causing the remaining fowl to scream at the top of its little birdy lungs for the rest of the night. That led to lots of gobbling from local wild turkeys, and in general, things were quite noisy in a way that only the country can be.
