Killian will spend this weekend deep in music. He's got a gig at Barnes and Noble in Kingston: he'll play with both the jazz band and the chamber ensemble. He's also hoping to get into the studio with Ralph to do some more recording for the album. He's been doing some inspired stuff on the ukulele for Starman and is eager to lay down a track for Express Yourself. Killian's album (for that is what he calls it... not "recording"...though he's never in his life played an actual album) is near completion. I could be wrong, but I guess that by summer he and Ralph might be finished.
Ukulele is such a grand and egalitarian divertissement. So many people will get a kick out of this, I'm sure. I even get a kick out of mediocre to bad ukulele performances. Follow these links and listen to at least 30 seconds of each (and note the range of people playing Starman on uke.)
I have this dream... an alien hears all these people-- even dozens more that never posted on Youtube-- playing Starman on ukulele. The alien gathers all these people up in his spaceship and brings them to Central Park. They all know why they're there. At once, without rehearsal, they all play Starman at the same time. People in the park join them in song. We are there.
