Love’s Evolution

Last night, Terrence, along with Brandon Essex on bass and vocalist Alexa Weber-Morales premiered a song written by Terrence (music) and me (lyrics) called Love’s Evolution.  It was written in celebration for a couple’s 35th anniversary.  It was very exciting and nerve-wracking all at the same time.

Check out the video to hear and see the performance:

Let me know what you think!

Love’s Evolution – mobile size

“Watch the vertical, Camera 3!”

Saturday afternoon found us driving to T’s gig at Anchorage Square on Fisherman’s Wharf when his cell phone rang (what else is new?). He starts chatting away with Marshall – the MAN – Lamm (you’ll know why in the next sentence why he’s THE MAN!). Marshall books for the Sonoma Wine and Jazz Concert, where T was scheduled to play the next afternoon. But, Marshall needed someone to represent the concert series at the KPIX Channel 5 news station for the Sunday morning news — and who did he call? Terrence Brewer!

So, on Sunday morning we drove to SF and Terrence was interviewed by Lisa Chan and Joe Vazquez and had a chance to play live on air on KPIX morning news from 7:30 – 8:30am. Then, the same news crew hosts the UPN Channel 44 morning news from 8:30 – 9:30am and they asked him to stay for that; so, he was interviewed again and played some more.

It was very cool, especially since some people up in Sonoma said they came up just to see Terrence because they saw him on the news. It looks as if I may have to compete with either 6 year olds or 60-something women for Terrence’s affection;).

Needless to say, that experience was crazy enough, but the Monday prior (5/22/06), T had his 1-hour radio interview on www.kcsm.org with Chris Cortez, then a feature article on Thursday (5/25/06) in the Contra Costa Times.

And, if all that wasn’t enough, T filmed a segment for Back in the Day with Satin Dawl for public access TV today (5/30/06) and all I kept hearing was, “Watch the vertical, Camera 3!”

Yeah, someone – the director – actually said that to me! I can now add camera operator to my resume. When we showed up at the studio (right here in good ‘ol Alameda) they were short one camera operator and somehow, I was recruited for the job — my name is actually going to roll in the credits – how funny is that! Camera 3 is in charge of all the close-up’s of the host — watch for my fancy work:).

Musical Musings – April 2006

*April 10th marked a significant date for Terrence – he returned to LMC as the featured guitarist for the college’s music recital – a real thrill for him, especially since his mom and grandmother were in the audience.

*Had a fantastic birthday thanks to my husband (Friday @ The Commodore Yachts [we were actually on Bay Area Bargains on KRON 4, The Purple Onion – How We First Met), my girlfriends (Saturday @ Cha Cha Cha, Amnesia, and the Metronome), and my mom and aunt (Sunday @ Horatio’s & Chevy’s… ooooey goooey….yum!). I definitely celebrated 35 in style!

*And tonight… Terrence had his first on-air interview at KPFA a local station out of Berkeley. Greg Bridges of KPFA and KCSM interviewed T and gave him the highest compliment saying that off his new CD’s The Calling: Volume One and Volume Two would be new jazz Standards — totally awesome compliment!
