PIPING HOT at CAFE BORRONE (June 10, 2011)

You might need to get a pot-holder from the kitchen before proceeding.  Perhaps you’d like to turn on the air conditioning?

Through the generosity of Rae Ann Berry and Clint Baker’s Cafe Borrone All-Stars, I am able to share with you two video performances that perfectly exemplify HOT JAZZ at its finest.  The first is a pretty, mournfully rocking “rhythm ballad,” TRUE:

The wizards on your screen are Clint Baker, clarinet; Leon Oakley, cornet; Jim Klippert, trombone; Jeff Magidson, guitar; Sam Rocha, bass; Bill Reinhart, banjo; and Isabelle Fontaine, washboard.

HOT, to remind you, isn’t fast or loud: it’s intense while all the time pretending with the greatest casualness that nothing difficult is being accomplished.  Here’s something that is both HOT and romping, a performance of WEARY BLUES that is anything but — with Riley Baker added on drums:

It is HOT in here — it isn’t just me.
