lucca, nerdy, tinkering

Dude. We got to sing for/with Alice Parker today. (of Alice Parker and Robert Shaw). She has got to be the most vital 80 year old I've ever seen. Picture a little old lady twisting on stage to a jazz beat in her head. She went over the piece of hers we're doing ("Saints Bound for Heaven"), and it sounded so much better by the time she was done with us. She also managed to teach us another of her songs in about 10 minutes, to prove her point about how terribly lossy notating music on paper is.

Uh-oh.. I said "lossy". And I'm thinking about bits. All my mind ever wants to do these days is think about bits. No biscuit.
