Len’s Initiation into Jazz-manhood

Posted by sue on February 17th, 2008

Len has triumphantly returned to flute playing recently after a long hiatus. He played everything in the Jethro Tull catalog once upon a time, but hasn’t done much with the instrument for several years. But we have a friend here in Lisbon, an American guy and colleague of mine named Jordan, who is a bass player and he wanted to get in on some jazz jam sessions. He found one on Monday nights at a jazz club in Bairro Alto (the main night life zone of Lisbon) called Catacumbas, and has played there three times now. This past Monday night, Len, on flute, also joined in on a performance of a song called “Footprints.” It was no train wreck, as many of you might predict, but Len was hampered by not being able to hear most of his own notes (no monitor amps for you rockers). So if you catch something on Reuters like “Portuguese Jazz Club Riot Kills Flautist” you’ll have a heads up. And, by the way, Jordan is that guy in the middle.

    Hog that microphone Len!

    The sax player seems pretty happy with the flute playing… in a.. glare-y sort of way. :-\

    Congrats on jumping back on stage!

    The former Beagles’ individual efforts are booming — Len is playing the international circuit, Gary is becoming a uke-meister, and I’m annoying the cat. :-j

    “Men at Work” had a flute also, fyi.

    That’s so Ron Burgandy.

    Len has no passion in his eyes. You can tell he is dreaming about his Sony cubicle.
