we stand up so I end up tired with sore feet and my back aches.  Not as much
fun as with a Jazz trio somewhere in a lounge or with my own gig.

Reminds me of something New York pianist Derek Smith said to me once.  We
were at a jam session and a group was playing some less than tasteful music.
Derek said, "  I don't mind playing that stuff, but I don't like to listen
to it.."
