Hey Johan, I'm working out "Hanging Tree" on the piano (my instrument) just for kicks ... my stereo is on the fritz and I'm playing it on my little boom box, so the bass isn't great ... The chorus is a repeating 4 bar theme ... is the 3rd bar a G chord with E in the bass? ... that's what it sounds like ... anyway be extremely kool if you get a chance to chime in ... That's a pretty magnificent piece of music + imagery you and Geoff did by the way

Ahhh, Music Theory by John Wetton...   Could be your next book, Kim.

When I saw this thread in the main message area I thought it was pertaining to performing in musicials, that you, Johan, had finally caved-in and was going to play the Phantom in Phantom of the Opera (BTW:  I broke up with that girl that suggested you should).  Not so. Oh well.   But I do have a question.  Have you ever performed or recorded with a choir backing you up as opposed to you using your own backing vox or a small group?

I'm not talented enough to make comment on the musical part of this thread...but the cuisine sounds like a symphony.

MMMM ... although I'd skip the spinach.  I had baked salmon last night with my favorite peach salsa over top of it.  Sweet and hot (just like me ).

I've just recently learned how good salmon is....what was I thinking all those years! Like Johan said only with a bit of lemon pepper.

One year I grew spinach in my garden. It took my whole crop to fill a cereal bowl. It REALLY wilts down, but I love it. From then on I let someone else grow it.

Yes,if you thought you'd got way too much---steam it, and it'll fit in a thimble.

Salmon, huh? 

The way I developed a positive taste for salmon was up in the Pacific Northwest--where it was smoked, fresh off of the firepit!!  Yummy!

My mother gently poaches salmon with a bit of olive oil, fresh herbs, salt and pepper, and it tastes great!  Must be all the love she puts into it.  I, on the other hand, don't cook fish because my better half won't eat it, so why bother?  Chicken anyone?

Okay, Cooking with John Wetton.  Now Kim has yet another book to work on!  Perhaps we could develop it into a TV show too.  John cooks and then he can play musicial interludes inbetween segments.  We can take advantage of the writer's strike and sell this as reality TV.  No script, baby!  John Wetton cookin', playin', singin'...... RAWWWWW!

Ok, so when do we start??

We start with the title of the Book/Show....of course, it is:

Heat of the Moment -- Real Food/Real Asia
 
I can't wait for the combination Bass/Bass show.
 
What works for you?
