STEPHANIE TRICK, PAOLO ALDERIGHI, MARTY EGGERS, DANNY COOTS: A NIGHT AT THE ROSSMOOR JAZZ CLUB, MARCH 11, 2014 (Part Two)

We had such a good time!  Fine music and warm feelings filled the room when Stephanie Trick and Paolo Alderighi, piano; Marty Eggers, string bass; Danny Coots, drums, played to a full house at the Rossmoor Jazz Club in Walnut Creek, California, on March 11, 2014. For those of you who couldn’t make it, here is the first half of this glorious concert.

“Effervescent” and “versatile” are the two words that come to mind when I think of Stephanie and Paolo.

While you are admiring the beaming pair, please don’t neglect Marty and Danny — rocking and flexible, rhythm men of great renown.

And here’s the rest, with a chocolate-covered surprise at the end.

GRANDPA’S SPELLS (with Paolo’s dangerous but perfectly controlled elbow):

MINOR DRAG:

BOOGIE WOOGIE:

RUNNIN’ WILD:

‘DEED I DO:

IT HAD TO BE YOU:

EXACTLY LIKE YOU:

I WISH I WERE TWINS (as a samba):

A Surprise:

(The Rossmoor Jazz Club offers concerts monthly in a beautiful hall for reasonable prices: see here for their schedule and details. Additional concerts are November 19: the Crown Syncopators — Frederick Hodges, Marty Eggers, and Virginia Tichenor; December 10, the Devil Mountain Jazz Band.

May your happiness increase!

  1. To say these two young performers are awesome would be selling them short! Oh my gosh!! How wonderful to see them carrying on some of the greatest music ever,… Marty Eggars,,,I met him and Virginia about 10 years ago in Indiana..Two of the nicest people ever, and super talented! Thank you so much for the wonderful post, NM.

    Ida’s words above say it so well- Paolo and Stephanie ‘make such beautiful music together’- yes they do!

  3. Wow – Stephanie Trick must have played Albert Ammons’ “Boogie Woogie Stomp” a zillion times before – but this version is really outstanding !
    I envy you and all those present at this recital. Thanks so much for making it possible to enjoy it here; much appreciated, indeed.
