“SEND ME, GATE!”: DEEP GROOVES AT JAZZ AT CHAUTAUQUA: MARTY GROSZ, JON-ERIK KELLSO, RANDY REINHART, SCOTT ROBINSON, DAN BLOCK, BOB HAVENS, JOHN SHERIDAN, FRANK TATE, PETE SIERS (September 21, 2012)

My heroes.  Marty Grosz (guitar and moral leadership); Jon-Erik Kellso (trumpet); Randy Reinhart (cornet); Scott Robinson (Joe Muranyi’s taragoto, his own tenor sax); Dan Block (clarinet and slightly recalcitrant bass clarinet); John Sheridan (piano); Frank Tate (string bass); Pete Siers (drums).

Jelly Roll Morton’s SHOE SHINER’S DRAG:

JADA — taken at the kind of tempo you don’t hear often enough these days.  Soaring and sweet and rocking.

We were sent.  No question about it.

Your homework: find the computer in your home that has the best speakers and the largest monitor, turn up the sound, make sure the picture is “full-screen,” gather the family and pets . . . show ‘em what Swing’s about.

May your happiness increase.

  1. Nice playing but the guys look utterly bored!

  2. Let your ears be your guide, Joe. I think that’s the look one gets while concentrating . . . having played these videos for some of the musicians onstage, their reaction was anything but boredom. Cheers, Michael

  3. Always a big pleasure to hear Scott Robinson!

  4. Stompy Jones

    Cherce!
