“CERTAINLY!”: THE UNACCOUNTED FOUR (Nov. 2, 2014)

Let me state it plainly: the Unaccounted Four is simply one of the best small bands ever.

Here is what I wrote about their debut CD, PLAYGROUND. And here’s a performance of a famous Charlie Shavers song, captured on November 2, 2014:

The official title of that song is UNDECIDED (whether you believe the story of the telegram is up to you) but this is a very sure, very certain performance indeed. I delight in these four creative gents.

And a few hours from now, I (feeling very fortunate!) will be on a plane to the Whitley Bay Classic Jazz Party, where I will get to see and speak to and hear one of my heroes, Menno Daams.

May your happiness increase!
