A Quick VF Field Report

Hi everyone and happy April, where Pau, Xime and I are getting into the spring swing of things, as well as packing our bags for a quick jaunt back to Costa Rica – well, more of a long weekend, if anything, but it’ll be the first time either of us will have been there since 2013 – looking forward to introducing our little one to friends and family, as well as trucking up a couple more suitcases of our stuff – much to the delight of Pau’s folks. Enough about us though and more about Paul Mimlitsch, an extremely talented performer and improviser on guitar and bass clarinet who’s taken up the VF standard and really pushed the limits of what even I thought was possible with our boxes – I mean, seriously impressive. Seriously, seriously impressive – like it rendered me, as vociferous as I typically am, completely speechless when I first heard his recordings at the end of last year. Good stuff. Great stuff – feel free to take a listen to the recordings included with this post and then buzz over to his Soundcloud page to check out the rest. Gotta say, as a builder, it’s always a good thing to hear what recordings your creations end up on – especially when they completely supersede your expectations of what they’re capable of. Looking forward to hearing more. And I guess on that note, hey, anyone else have any recordings you’d like to share? Forever curious. (t)
