- Music, good friends, and good
smells coming from the kitchen. Wine being passed around,
Chris at the baby grand and Sharon playing violin; the
song a soft jazz-classical crossover in a minor key. Then
into "Deep Inside of Me," the sound of the baby grand
pulling us into the mood; Sharon's voice flowing around
the notes from the piano.
- Jim Fowler, a friend and writer
for the L.A. Times, was over, gathered with other friends
in the living room. A wood fire added a dancing glow to
the subdued lighting. The music, which had started mellow
and acoustic, heated up as Poppy's Voodoo started the
fire dancing to a different rhythm.
This is one of the special
pleasures of "hanging with the band." Nights when the
music is just for the love of it; and the people in the
room are all in the same groove.
- The band still loves the music.
The pressures of making a name for themselves and the
necessities of marketing haven't changed that. They're
together because they want to make music, and it
