FREE-WHEELING ON SPRING STREET: THE EarRegulars (JON-ERIK KELLSO, MATT MUNISTERI, GREG COHEN, TAD SHULL) PLAY HOAGY CARMICHAEL (March 31, 2013)

Those “old chestnuts” can be very tasty.

RIVERBOAT SHUFFLE (originally called FREE WHEELING) by one Hoagland Carmichael, is ninety years old as I write this.  But the tune — with its twists and turns — is flavorful and lively, especially when played by a group as energized and intuitive as The EarRegulars, the regularly brilliant quartet-plus co-led by guitarist Matt Munisteri and trumpeter Jon-Erik Kellso on Sunday nights (8-11 PM) at The Ear Inn, 326 Spring Street, Soho, New York City.  The other members of this quartet — on March 31, 2013 — were string bassist Greg Cohen and tenor saxophonist Tad Shull.

Creativity — from 1923 or 2013 or a blending of the two — will never grow old.

May your happiness increase.

  1. In fine fettle, as usual.

  2. Hi guys:

    Dad would be the first to thank you guys for helping to keep his music alive. I would have been there to salute you had I known of the March 31st event. It sounds wonderful. Hoagy B. Carmichael

  3. Dear Hoagy Bix, if you’re around next March 31 or so, let Jon-Erik Kellso know . . . you’ll get the best seat in the house (near the band). Honored to have you on the blog!
