Martin - Brilliant Drummer :: 12th, July, 2005


Finally, I was playing drums at the Jazz bar, called Spice of Life which I usually visit when there are good gigs. It's quite fantastic experience to me.
I actually didn't want to play drums on that particular day, because I just wanted to see other people who were playing drums as well, but my patience had worn out....
So, I wrote down my name on the list, and I was waiting my turn.

At last my team was made up by the manager, and I played drums with them.
I played two songs which was kind of blues impromptu music for 20 minutes.
There were seven people including me. One guy who was playing Hamonica was the leader, and another guy who was playing Saxphone was his friend. And also there were two guitarists - one of them was Japanese called Tawa? Mata? (I can't remember exactly), the pianist, and the bass player were also playing fantastic songs.
Many people gave me a clap with cheers, and especially I remembered that one woman said that you were brillian man. ^^ I'm brilliant drummer... hahaha

Suddenly, I felt a bit worried about that, If I go back to Korea, I won't have as many opportunities and I will miss life at London.
So I decided that I will make time for playing drums every Tuesday there, even if I haven't enough time.
I'm so much looking forward to playing there next Tuesday.

드디어, 재즈바 - 종종 좋은 공연 있으면 들러서 구경하던 Spice of Life 라는 재즈바에서 드럼연주를 했드랬다. 박수~~~ 짝짝짝
뭐 사실 그날 드럼을 치고자 하는 목적을 가지고 간건 아니였고, 뭐랄까 탐색전 정도? 분위기 파악 하러 간거였는데... 몸이 근질근질해서 참을수가 없었다.
그래서 결국 내 이름을 잼 참가자 리스트에 쓰고 내 차례를 기다린 것이다.

마침내 재즈바 매니저가 팀이 만들어 졌으니 나오라고 한다.
20분여에 걸쳐 블루스음악 두 곡의 즉흥곡을 연주했다.
팀은 나를 포함 일곱명이었다. 하모니카를 든 사내가 리더격인 사람이었고, 섹스폰을 부는 영감님은 그사람 친구인 모양이다. 기타리스트가 둘 있었는데 그중 하나가 타와인가 마타인가.. 기억은 잘 안나지만 일본인이었고, 피아니스트랑 베이시스트 역시 엄청난 연주를 해주었다.
많은 사람들이 박수와 환호를 보내주었고, 특히 기억 나는 것이 한 여성관객이 나보고 대단한놈이라고 극찬을 해준 것이다.

뜬금없이 한국에 돌아가면 이런 기회가 다시는 없을 것 같고, 런던에서의 생활이 그리울까 걱정이 되기 시작했다.
그래서 결심했다. 적어도 런던에 있는 동안은 무슨일이 있어도 화요일은 시간을 내어 드럼을 치러 가겠노라고.
정말 다음주 화요일이 기대된다.
