Not FLYIN’ HOME but its brass cousin — SLIDIN’ HOME as two of the best jazz trombonists show off their wonderful musical teamwork at the 2012 Atlanta Jazz Party. Closer to my lens was John Allred, next to him (and at the microphone) was Russ Phillips; they were aided and abetted by Mark Shane, piano; Frank Tate, string bass; Chuck Redd, drums — a stellar rhythm trio.
We were more than satisfied!
The Rodgers and Hart classic THIS CAN’T BE LOVE:
Even more venerable, Isham Jones’ ON THE ALAMO:
An invitation to nocturnal spooning and the like, GET OUT AND GET UNDER THE MOON:
And, appropriately, Gordon Jenkins’ GOOD-BYE:
All this group needs is a nifty title or acronym. JARP doesn’t convey their excellence sufficiently, nor does FSFT (Famous Sons of Famous Trombonists) but I am sure someone will suggest something better.
May your happiness increase.
