The EarRegulars — that flexible, wise, hilarious, and swinging group led by Jon-Erik Kellso and most often featuring Matt Munisteri — has been one of the pleasures of living in or visiting New York since 2007. (Almost every Sunday night of the year, they hold court at The Ear Inn, 326 Spring Street, New York., from 8-11 PM, more or less.)
This year, thanks to the Bohem Ragtime and Jazz Festival, they had the opportunity to share the good sounds in Hungary and in Germany to properly appreciative audiences.
The EarRegulars recorded their first CD — with Jon-Erik, Matt, Scott Robinson, and Greg Cohen — in beautiful sound. Want a copy? (It’s $15.) Click TheEarRegulars and tell them you saw it on JAZZ LIVES. If you don’t “do Facebook,” send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org., and I will pass it along.
But there’s more: a new video recorded in a Berlin jazz club on March 26, 2014:
And if you didn’t see the beautiful video of SINGIN’ THE BLUES from the Bohem festivities, here it is.

May your happiness increase!
