jayrope at Jazzfest Saalfelden, Aug., 23, 2002

The year after i was hoping to get there again, but Martin was the connected guy in the first place already – and jayrope didn’t have anything new to offer.
However, it’s been awkward already, how professional jazzers ‘hung out’ there. In the backstage of the bigger Oktoberfest-type of stage there was only Jess Murphy and me playing folksongs for the staff all day long. Most other musicians seemed very tour-lagged or generally uninterested. Jesse looked like a friendly Austin slacker, he played awesome and fat bass stuff and then there was a great mademoiselle by the name of Maria, who simply oversaw all artist transports
Very stressful job for her, but handled in a very smart and relaxed way. Overall the festival staff there was phantastic: relaxed, helpful, friendly, interested. Great place to make friends.
