I wouldn’t go so far as to say that (I’LL BE GLAD WHEN YOU’RE DEAD) YOU RASCAL YOU expresses the guiding philosophy of Martin Oliver Grosz . . . and anyway the malice here is good-humored and swinging.
This nicely done video captures Marty and friends at a recent appearance at the Mermaid Inn — Danny Tobias, cornet; Joe Midiri, clarinet; Gary Cattley, string bass. The video comes from GEO SOUND — created by award-winning filmmaker / composer George Manney. Find out more about his work here.
And — wonder of wonders! — there’s a Marty Grosz Facebook fan page, where you can learn all about the great man’s comings and goings, including future gigs at the Mermaid Inn. I hear tell he will be at the 2012 Jazz at Chautauqua, too. The fan page is here. And Marty will be leading another small group at the Mermaid Inn on Friday, June 8 — including ace brassman Randy Reinhart. All you rascals should be there!
May your happiness increase.
