I post this delicious session — held in the vaults until now — both as a nostalgic glance backwards at the joys of Jazz at Chautauqua and as a “coming attraction” for what is to come this September.
Here’s Andy Schumm, cornet; Marty Grosz, guitar; Bob Havens, trombone; Alex Hoffman, tenor saxophone; John Sheridan, piano; Kerry Lewis, string bass; Pete Siers, drums.
From the early Ben Pollack book, WAITIN’ FOR KATY:
SWEET SUE, “featuring our fantastic vocalist”:
An easy-rocking JAZZ ME BLUES:
The closer! CHICAGO RHYTHM:
This one’s for the Beloved, for Stompy Jones and Maxine, for Ray, for Geri, for Aunt Ida, for Nancie, for Laura Beth . . . all the folks I cherish.
See you in September!
May your happiness increase.
