We're not saying we're getting old, but we are saying that The Flood is getting a bit forgetful. (Guess that can be expected from a band that's been around for 40 years.) We've noticed that tunes we used to play a lot have lately drifted out of our collective consciousness. So to counteract the ravages of time, we've been using some of our Wednesday night rehearsal time of late to reach back to arrangements that have been on the endangered list. Last night, Michelle Walker brought us back to this Duke Ellington composition that we recorded more than 10 years ago, and just listen to how Joe Dobbs and Sam St. Clair really connect with it.
