A SECOND TASTE: BRIA SKONBERG, MARTY NAPOLEON, BILL CROW, RAY MOSCA (July 5, 2013)

Fabulous musicians at play in Glen Cove, New York, with a single purpose: “Remembering Pops.”  That’s Marty Napoleon, swinging out on the piano (88 keys, 92 years); the sweetly incendiary Bria Skonberg on trumpet; and reliable experts Bill Crow, string bass; Ray Mosca, drums.  Recorded by our pal Jim Balantic; concert turned from an idea into a reality by our comrade Geri Goldman Reichgut.  And rumor has it that more video from this concert is being posted, as I write this, by the ever-true-blue Neal Siegal.

I’d like to hear more of this band . . . any suggestions for future gigs?

May your happiness increase!

  2. Is that the same BIll Crow who wrote Jazz Anecdotes?

    …and wow I just discovered a new edition that came out in 2005 with more stories, apparently.

  3. Bill is still a superb bassist. I’ve heard him with Marty Napoleon earlier this year (on video) and everyone was blown away when he sat in at The Ear Inn a few months ago — such lovely time and sound! And you are right about his books . . .
