A very eventful week for me was capped by this fun gig at the Underground Yoga Parlor in West Oakland.
UYP is a very cool ashram, decorated with great Hindu artwork. It is part of a larger complex of buildings that seems like some kind of oasis, within its large, flower teeming interior courtyard.
We played four pieces, and it felt right. The key for my playing within the context of Janina's group is to keep things simple, providing support for the vocals and guitar sounds. Janina is pretty particular about how the pieces should be structured and played, and I respect that.
