What a lovely discovery, courtesy of “andreaskagedal” on YouTube. I don’t know the gentleman at all, but he has wonderful taste.
He’s responsible for capturing this gently operatic reading of HOME by Bent Persson and the Hot Antic Jazz Band at the 2010 Askersunds Jazz Festival. Sharp-eyed viewers will pick out Martin Seck on piano, Jean-Francois Bonnel on tenor sax, and Michel Bastide on ensemble trumpet and the half-spoken vocal, quite charming.
As my readers know, I find Bent’s evocations of Louis touching beyond words — here I am especially enchanted by his muted obbligato to Michel’s vocal.
When shadows fall!
