JAZZ WALKED IN: DAN BLOCK, ED WISE, DANNY TOBIAS at THE MERMAID INN (May 17, 2013)

Here’s a sweet surprise, courtesy of George Gershwin and improvisatory impulses that won’t be denied.  In between sets on a recent Marty Grosz gig at The Mermaid Inn, two, then three players took the stand to explore LOVE WALKED IN: first Dan Block, alto, with Ed Wise, string bass, then Danny Tobias, cornet.  Delicious results!

Once again, here’s an explanation — without words — of why improvising musicians call it PLAYING.

May your happiness increase!
