discount. easter. candy
It's that time again. Time to come dangerously close to give myself adult onset diabetes by gorging myself on discount easter candy. So it goes. Avoiding the rain today, listening to Willie Nelson's Stardust, and beginning to get contact info together to start booking a tour for the summer. Going to be a great few months with shows, writing, and rehearsing. I'll (AJ) be relocating to NYC in a few months but look for a few Chicago dates for ALDRIC and a tour supporting the release of Anvils & Broken Bells this July.
About that image - that's the Guidonian Hand (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guidonian_hand) and was a Midieval music communication system devised to teach choirs. Instead of handing out sheet music, the director would point to a joint on his hand associated with a pitch. Can't believe it was supplanted by notation. Happy Monday.
