Rehearsals start outside of Amsterdam with the Ex & Brass Unbound (w/Roy Paci, Wolter Wierbos, and Mats Gustafsson). Lots of material to get together, 13 pieces (combination of 6 new pieces, some Ethiopian music, and “classics” purchase prednisone pills from the Ex book), more than 80 minutes of music to learn and memorize as quickly as possible. Watched an interesting BBC documentary on the Ethiopian music scene with Terrie in the evening.
