From the recording Neighborhood
from the cd "Postcard." released in 1993, recorded with my special guest and good friend Cercie Miller on saxophone. i heard it as a kind of thing we might hear hanging out on the steps in a crowded neighborhood. lots of people playing percussion on empty bottles as others walked by going about their routines. in reality, my neighborhood scene was one of wide open spaces and gardens and grass and trees. and my neighbor, bud, would bring me tomatoes to plant and talk about the red sox. it's all in there, somewhere.
