Rehearsals are wonderful. Time and space to work things out, experiment and polish. They are also a lovely opportunity to wallow in the sounds and stretch things out in a way that you can’t do in front of an audience. I just had one of the most enjoyable rehearsals I’ve had for a long time, with Geoff for Wednesday’s Tom Waits gig. I just want to keep playing all night, but will have to be content with taking those songs out in a couple of days.
