"I don't have a problem being out there performing two hundred gigs a yearthat's what I always wanted to do. It's also a return to what it used to be. If you go back to the 1920s and 1930s and you think of someone like Robert Johnsoneven before jazz as we know itwho travelled from town to town playing for whatever he could getroom, board, booze, a bit of money, and then he moved onto the next town. He was sort of a folk hero rather than a celebrity. Later, jazz bands had their own buses and trains. They were constantly on the road and they played everywhere."
This Irish tour then, sees Lyttle and Leighton reconnecting with time-honored tradition. "It's a return to an old-fashioned existence as a musician," says Lyttle, "and I think that's great."
