Frank Moore's Cherotic All-Star Band. Also on the bill that night Novi Split, Justin Shay, +DOG+
Il Corral, Los Angeles, CA
And then it was our cherotic turn. I advertised the tour as RIPPING EROTIC PASSION PUNK JAZZ. I think we lived/played up to that! To start with, I did my 4-minute solo vocal, sitting nude in strobe lights and color slides of 30 years of performances flashing … my eyes welded shut tearing of trance. Then Steve Emanuel with his stand-up bass melted into my moaning song of passions. He and I go way back to ’68 in San Bernardino, and then in Santa Fe. It’s mind-blowing that we are still doing things together! We used all of that to musically tango together. After awhile nude Linda and Erika joined in the deep rubbing pleasure dance both vocally and erotically. Steve Davis took over laying down the groove with his bass as Steve E. switched for his debut as a hot lead guitarist! Vinnie “Spit” Santino brought Gary Ponder, a great jazz/rock session drummer to go on the quest of the evolving beat with him. Tomek added a spicy sauce with his accordion and clarinet. Oh, Justin started out in the jam, but quickly got immobilized within joy of an altered state. So he just sat there grooving. That can happen! Everybody in the band was into paying attention to one another, deeply listening, following one another. So the tight pink of freedom was there right at the beginning and never let up, kept opening dimensions for us to explore, never stopping, even when things got tiny and intimate, then blossomed into newness. Linda and Erika went into the audience to cuddle with people … people drank it up. When it was all “over,” everybody was simply blown out at what had just happened.
