Janice organized an amazing celebration jam for Karl, we had a barbecue just outside the door and a room full of beautiful gear at Abalone Lounge. Tim flew in from back east, Schwag brought his vibes, the music was filled with respect and love for Karl Grossman. Karl , in a fit of inspiration, wrote Mineral Deposit in 5 minutes, charted it for Tim, and we tackled it like we tackle everything: "o hell ,go for it". Tim hadn't played horns in years, but he met the challenge head on. Big Jerks likes that sort of musical bravery.
