THEY’VE GOT RHYTHM: REBECCA KILGORE QUARTET and MARK SHANE (Sept. 3, 2011)

Here’s a beautifully swinging interlude from the 2011 Sweet and Hot Music Festival. 

This detour into happiness was created for us by the witty and light-hearted singer Rebecca Kilgore, the ebullient Dan Barrett (trombone and ebullience); Eddie Erickson (guitar and practical philosophy); Joel Forbes (string bass and pragmatism), with a special guest appearance by the always-enlightening Mark Shane (piano).  They offer the Walter Donaldson classic YOU’RE DRIVING ME CRAZY with a side glance at the Reno Club in Kansas City:

This quintet is the real thing . . . accept no substitutes!

  1. Thank you MIchael- as I no longer get to hear the music, I am especially appreciative of your postings… and I love your parenthetical asides although “practical philosophy” would not have been my first choice for Fast Eddie, it is amazingly accurate (smile) and ebullience is right on the money for the wonderful Dan (known him since forever) while JOel does try and keep the kids in line, he also has a nicely wicked sense of humor- you can hear it in his playing- Rebecca is without question one of th enicest humans on two feet and she makes ever note sound effortless… I swear Mark has a painting in his attic- don’t you? Agaihn- thank you for all your posts, i get to go to the Sweet and Hot through your eyes this way.

  2. More please!

  3. The best!

  4. Thanks for re-posting this! It was worth it!
