TWO FOR MILDRED: DARYL SHERMAN at the WHITLEY BAY CLASSIC JAZZ PARTY (Nov. 1, 2013)

It’s always pleasing to me when an artist fully inhabits the present while offering a deep understanding of the tradition.  The soulful Miss Daryl Sherman does just that.

Here, Daryl honors one of her idols and mine, Mildred Bailey, at the 2013 Whitley Bay Classic Jazz Party. She is accompanied by Duke Heitger, trumpet; Alistair Allan, trombone; Jean-Francois Bonnel, reeds; Emma Fisk, violin; Keith Nichols, piano; Henri Lemaire, string bass; Spats Langham, guitar; Richard Pite, drums.

First, the lovely I’LL CLOSE MY EYES:

Then, Mister Berlin’s cheerful I’VE GOT MY LOVE TO KEEP ME WARM:

I’ve been remiss in not posting these earlier, but a variety of technical difficulties held them back.  Thank you, Daryl, and swinging players, for telling your stories with a swinging beat.

May your happiness increase!

    Better late then never! Ms. Sherman is in terrific form and so is her band. She used to appear around the New England area with Braff and others.I haven’t heard much from her since she lost her long-standing gig at a Manhattan hotel (change of policy).Mr Heitger has listened to a lot of Ruby, he is a fine trumpeter.

    Thanks “Zoot” Conner…what a lovely surprise…and my thanks to Michael Steinman. It’s such a sweet reminder of that weekend in Newcastle chock full of fine musicianship and warm comraderie.
