The rhythm section is like a marriage. It can take months for bass and drums to lock. And it can take years before they begin to look like each other and their dogs. That’s the advantage of scoring a pair  like Jerome and David. They have been playing together since Texas.  Texas was a long time ago.

The first time we all played together was last fall. Both Jeff and Amos had subbed out. It was like standing on the deck of a battleship. Kosi looked at me sideways across the room.
“There’s a whole lot of blackness going on here.”
“Yeah.” I said. ” It’s The Goddess Lakshmi Blaxplosian Band.”

We were reunited last Sunday. It started out a little tentatively. But by the end of the first set somebody jumped up and started dancing.  That’s what’s up.

    Let me know if you ever bring it to the southern hemisphere – I will be cheering and SO there.

    You played so hard at the May 27 gig. Makes me a bit sad I’ll not experience it again for a while – but so glad I got my sh*t together to go.
