Ep. 61 Tap Dance Notes

Explorations in Tap Dance Land

Every now and then I pull out the WING to see how it's sitting. This one seemed to sit in an interesting place. Fly, float, then return to the ground with a rumble. The rumble of a wing coming back to the ground – or a group of slurps for that matter – can be a thing of beauty. In this particular step there's also a HUGE pocket. I'm laying back sooooo much, pacing-wise, that I may have slipped into just being slow 🙃. But I LOVE that kind of experimentation. How far can I lay back and open that pocket up, and not lose the trust of the musicians I'm playing with. After all, the organization of time is one of the things that allows for communication to happen in Tap Dance Land.
