Blog Start

September 1st, 2008

I’ve been trying to get one of these things going for a long time, and when I was working on my ArtistShare project (PLUG: the Grammy Award winning “Simpático” featuring Eddie Palmieri) I was keeping a “Web journal” on a semi-regular basis as part of the project. I say “semi-regular” when it should have been “actually regular”; the difference being in that it was like pulling teeth for me to post more than a few lines, even when real interesting things were happening that I was happy to share with la gente. Writing is something that I enjoy, but have troubles with – mostly in getting started on a piece. Hmmm, reminds me of my issues in music writing now…. And maybe it’s my old school coming out where communicativeness seems corny – don’t show the people your hand and all that. On the other hand, I’ve always felt at home sharing my process with people, and I think that representing yourself as an artistic enigma is both corny and counter-productive, not to mention out of date. And I do have a lot of opinions about things, as any of my colleagues and friends can tell you. So, at the verge of a lot of new activity for me artistically (hopefully – more on that later on), I think I’ll give this a try again. Maybe after a period of getting-into-it fatutity I’ll be able to get some chops up to be able to hold some interest. We shall see….

    Well, I hope you get into it big time, now. None of this “semi-regular” stuff. We want to hear what you have to say on a regular basis. Tammy
