Music: There’s a Virus Among us/Joliet Blues (2020)

Here’s a song that captures what my musical partner Andy and I do in my garage on a regular basis: we find a groove, and then extemporize upon it. And when all the conditions are right–we’re not trying to impress anyone, we just want to explore what the simple structure of the beat and harmony demand–it seems to work.

Our sound is sparse–you can hear the train going by behind our property and even birds singing–but our musical interaction is organic and free. When we’re doing things right, it just happens without trying. Hard to explain, but it works.

Let us know your thoughts, if you care to share.
