Brilliant dream last night... Just remembered, I was walking down a street & there was lee Popa playing what looked like a small electrolysed trumpet.. jolee was just out of eyesight, singing...;-))) we recognised each other..
I was in a jungle, high up a tree ~ laughing as I watched a tiger eating me...
Whilst asleep I dreamt I was sitting in my front room & 4 guys from The Prodigy were trying to look inside my head. (the Prodigy originate from my town & Leroy, since departed, lived 4 doors up the road from me)
Stevie Wonder was leaning against a low brick wall, bass strapped on & slapping every kinda paradiddle known to man with his left & right hands, which, of course, were in a blur!!! I was leaning on the same brick wall.................. next to him.
I sat next to Mike Stern as he played 'Before You Go' from Time in Place. I said 'I could never play like that' to which he replied 'Yes you can Andrew'
About 20 years ago I climbed down a silver rope from the sky into a crowd of thousands amongst which stood 2 Japanese business men next to a small wooden table. I turned to the stage way in the distance & said 'That music....who is it, it's beautiful' The Japanese guys said 'It's you' _-_ This dream is as clear today as it ever was. Andrew
