Playing "Bella Ciao" with HUMANWINE 3/09

Performing with beloved HUMANWINE at the Baxtalo Drom party in San Francisco, March 2009. These guys are old chums, but we only started playing together recently, in a decidedly seat-of-the-pants, fly-by-night kind of way. In fact, this is only the second time (in performance OR rehearsal) that I'd played "Bella Ciao" with them all the way through, and the very first time we EVER ran through "Intoxicated" with theremin!

For a classically trained monkey like me, it can be such a relief to just say "aw, fuggit" once in a while, and play things loose, raw and improvised without endless drilling and fuss. Especially with swashbucklers like Holly and M@. Thanks to Cindy Emch for capturing these.
