Up early with the idea of creating a 4CD Bad Plus Box Set – yes this is what runs through my head at five in the morning...

Accordingly, I made the first steps by separating the tracks from the eight CDs I have (only the out of print “Authorised Bootleg” evades me) into folders containing tracks written by each of Reid Anderson, Dave King and Ethan Iverson, another folder containing the various cover versions they’ve recorded and, finally, a folder of alternate versions...

I will return to this but, meanwhile, their music entertained me throughout the day...

At lunchtime, visited a bookshop whose window display of art books caught my eye whilst out with Dr Prog on Monday...

No purchases...

Bus home...


Lovely skies over Crispycat Towers this evening...


With my knees (and other parts of my legs) still too painful to venture back from the gym, I was in the mood to add the proposed acoustic guitar to the proposed Souvenir CD, giving it the full proposed sound I propose to make in November...

A rather poignant “Grand Designs”, wherein one of the participants succumbed to cancer just a few weeks into the project, was enjoyed – and followed by this week’s rather sad “Law & Order : Criminal Intent”...

Lights out with a lump in the throat...

Highlight of the Day : Finishing another CBQ CD, no doubt to no avail....
