El Paso: i wake up with the bus standing still, parked in front of the UTEP Center in El Paso… i make myself an espresso with the machine and the Illy beans i picked up at home yesterday…hm…and another… today is the 3rd aniversary of the death of Miles Davis… it is still unbelievable to me that we opened a show for him and his band at the Paramount Theater in Seattle in the Spring of 1990… we were so nervous… somewhere at home i have the ad from the Seattle newspaper that reads: “Miles Davis – with special guest Ottmar Liebert”… when we leave for Dallas at 10pm, we play “Sketches of Spain” on the bus in honour of Miles…
