YOU’RE DRIVING US CRAZY (WITH PLEASURE, THAT IS)

Courtesy of Howard Alden, Jon-Erik Kellso, Danny Tobias, Harvey Tibbs, Evan Christopher, Dan Block, Sebastien Giradot, Chuck Redd, and a receptive crowd — here’s a stirring jam session at the Ear Inn on Walter Donaldson’s wonderful song.  Don’t tune out before the final chorus, which is explosive and impassioned — the reason that wise jazz listeners make pilgrimages to 326 Spring Street every Sunday night.

One response to “YOU’RE DRIVING US CRAZY (WITH PLEASURE, THAT IS)

  1. Thanks for posting this, Michael, and for spreading the gospel, as always.

    For those keeping score, the 1st soloist is cornetist Danny Tobias,
    followed by clarinetist Evan Christopher, in town from New Orleans,
    trombonist Harvey Tibbs,
    trumpeter Jon-Erik Kellso,
    clarinetist Dan Block,
    guitarist Howard Alden,
    and that’s drummer/vibes player Chuck Redd playing brushes on the table and chair and whatnot,
    in town from DC,
    trading with bassist Sebastien Girardot, who was in town from Paris.

    I feel very blessed to have pals as talented as these with which to make such joyous music. (Whew, I narrowly avoided ending a sentence with “with” again, hehe. )

    cheers,

    Jon
