Jean Luc Ponty in Goa


What a disappointment!!! The Jean Luc Ponty concert would have been an utter waste of time if not for the bassist, keyboardist and drummer. It's a real shame when the backup musicians outshine the main attraction! I think the bassist was the best (and not a bad dancer, too!). The keyboard player was good, but he had a peculiar habit of standing up and sticking his bum out while playing.
The gates opened an hour after the scheduled time, and the concert was delayed by about 25 minutes. As if that wasn't bad enough, Jean Luc Ponty's performance was mediocre. The other band members were much better -- except for the percussionist. He should take lessons from our very own Zakir Hussain who, I'm sure, could have done everything this percussionist did, with one hand. (And I'm not just saying that 'coz Zakir Hussain hugged me!)
Anyway, on a different note, Cookie asked for a 'damn' butter sandwich today. So I made her a jam & butter sandwich, but the monkey didn't eat it. By the time I brought it to her she had changed her mind and wanted her milk instead.
Took her out for ice-cream earlier. Had a few spoonfuls and stopped. Do you know of any child who says no to ice-cream?!? She's really one of a kind!!
