According to a post to dandom.com Bluebook by a fan who phoned the Aalener Jazzfest, Donald Fagen won't be playing there this November. As reported a couple of days ago, Donald's name is mentioned among a handful of artists supposed to be part of the Aalener Jazzfest in southern Germany.
This is of course a blow to the hopes that Donald just might take his Morph The Cat tour to Europe. So what about the other rumoured date: Milan, Italy? Who knows?
Keepin' hope alive is a short notice on donaldfagen.com:
This in from Joelly Dubner:
this morning i had a rather odd voicemail from DF --
something about how when he was out on the road he wanted to be home, but now that he's home, he's not sure..."every minute I stay in this room I get weaker... and every minute Charlie squats in the bush he gets stronger"... what's that supposed to mean?
For the show-starved fan this might be dechipered as a possible urge to get back out on the road again.
Back to waiting... and perhaps seeing things where there's nothing to see.
