drifting away with banjo and kazoo

The best method to forget winter storms and a bad cold (disturbing our health) is: drifting away down to the south with some Mississippi music. I’m glad that Jeff Burns from Brooklyn joined my guitar and kazoo, I hope you’ll like it too!

  1. enjoy my wordpress widget below, featuring a “best of” my jam sessions with other musicians from soundcloud or wikiloops
    because some German friends asked me:
    Music has comforted me since I was aged 12, when I got a banjo and had my permanent place in a Dixieland formation of our school. Also I was a lead singer in a big Spiritual choir for a while. However, studies and career stifled everything – although I casually gave guitar lessons, from time to time I joined jam sessions in music pubs (“open mics” nights), was an excited listener on Gypsy attended concerts in Belgium, France and The Netherlands – and at home year after year I’ve invited various street musicians and recorded them for free and gave them their demo CD. I once wrote a history of Blues music (2 million viewers) and put it online (what Richard Koechli inspired for two of his guitar tutorials) – but for a band I was never good enough, I also discovered a certain stage fright inside of me – so I’m actually glad, to practice some home-recording for soundcloud and wikiloops at the end of my life (I’m aged 68). Especially a blues harmonica player from Hamburg (Gernot Baur) brought me back to full enjoyment of country blues music! His blues harp fits exactly to that style of music, in which I like to retreat dreaming, wasting my last days. On the other hand a professional musician & friend, living next door to me (Luzz), he opened the world of multi tracking in his home studio for me and recorded some titles with me as a gift: “Galloping Through Georgia” etc. (listen to my wordpress playlist below). Perhaps also the banjo player Jeff Burns of Brooklyn (featured here today, sitting with a feverish cold on his bedside in Brooklyn, bravely alluding to my kazoo), or Glenn Pellito, the singer from Florida, gave me new motivation to focus my days on self made music. Logical Résumé: I just bought a little multi track recorder, to have a fine rest of life:

  3. Hope you’re feeling better soon. The weather here in Toronto has gone from -24 degrees C to +8 in one day. We’re going through a big meltdown and later in the week it will be below freezing again. Your music ‘warms’ my heart. Thank you!

  5. Jensen’s photo gives me chills, but it’s very cool. The kazoo/guitar duo is very happy!


Hearing from you makes my day!
