    Attended performance #661 with about 24 others this evening and a grand time was had by all. Andy tells me he's about a month into his new Kimble mandolin, a two-point, shown below. I got a chance to play it after the gig and it's a real beast of a mandolin. One-piece back, slight radiused frets. Sounded like an 80 year old mandolin. Apparently Will traded back in part for Andy's old F mandolin and it may be for sale at some point. There's a mandolin that's going to sound incredible.

    Uploading a very large video of one mandolin piece, Anthem, and as soon as it's online I'll link to it. As it is, almost 1:00 a.m. and the video is only about 40% uploaded after 30 minutes so will add it tomorrow.

    I've always lusted after Wills 2 pointers. Easily one of the best looking mandolins out there.But I thought he had stopped making them. I guess not.

    He's been back to making them for a couple of years now... visually stunning and mellifluously musical!

    No one breaks in a mandolin like Andy Statman, but was there anything left for Will to sell? Will makes beautiful instruments.

    That was a great night Scott! Of course I didn't realize it at the time, but my sister and I and several friends were sitting right next to you. It was amazing how many styles Andy could exemplify and then tear apart and make completely his own in the space of an hour and a half. Also the only show I've ever been to that doubled as a slivovic tasting, but I hope it's not my last.

    John, I had very little of the sliv but as I was aware, it's a might potent beverage. Yowza!

    I am going to make it down to the synagogue one of these days. I catch him at Barbés when I can though. I can't wait to hear his new mando!

    The only Kimble I've played is the blonde one at Retrofret. What a stunner. The action was super high but they let me lower it after I requested to! That place is great.

    Perhaps the only thing I can criticize about Will's mandos is his choice of font for the headstock. It's one of the stock cursive fonts and I think it looks a bit tacky but that's just me. Nitpicking aside, obviously the sound is what matters and his mandos certainly have no shortage of that!

    Looking forward to checking out the video.

    Hi Brad,

    I agree about the font on the inlay - that's why I had Tom Ellis help me revise it a couple of years ago. I am satisfied with it now.

    Best wishes,
    Will Kimble

    So: Sarah Jessica Parker and husband Matthew Broderick: bad. Homeless person sleeping on the synagogue steps: good.

    It must feel real righteous to have these values, and easy too, since you live out of town.

    Idea: if you think the homeless person is so good, why don't you invite him to sleep on your doorstep?

    On another topic: Andy Statman is a total genius. We New Yorkers are fortunate to have him and this series of performance nearby.

    I can't make any sense at all of the post above (#35). And I think I just wasted 2 minutes of my life trying.

    I am with you, Brad. I even went to the old NY Times article and could find no references to homeless people or the celebrities mentioned.

    I am there too. I guess when someone only posts 4 times in 7 years they make each one really count!

    Check out article in the OP post #1. Has the relevant material but doesn't fully answer the statement: ("So: Sarah Jessica Parker and husband Matthew Broderick: bad." )

    I suspect he may have taken exception with the parting comment re NYC.

    The greatest city ever tho. Cold, cruel or otherwise

    Meanwhile... back in Brooklyn...

    I recorded a very nice duo show for Andy and Michael Daves. They seem to really like playing together. Andy's on mandolin, no clarinet this last gig. Lots of bluegrass, plus a few of Andy's adventurous instrumentals.

    It's was a part of Michael's Sundays in August residency at Jalopy Theatre in Brooklyn. Here's one from last year, and I will try and have the new videos out in a week or two.
