TWO-PART INVENTION: JON-ERIK KELLSO / EHUD ASHERIE at MEZZROW (Dec. 16, 2014)

Two of my great musical heroes, brave playful inventors: Jon-Erik Kellso, trumpet; Ehud Asherie, piano.  Recorded live at Mezzrow, 163 West Tenth Street, New York City, December 16, 2014.

Here’s a wondrous example of sustained synergy: Eubie Blake / Noble Sissle’s BANDANA DAYS turning the corner into Morton’s WILD MAN BLUES, nearly twelve minutes of jazz splendor:

We dare not take such beauty for granted.  (Translation: go see and support live jazz, wherever you are.)

May your happiness increase!

  1. First rate, including the guy on camera.

  2. Don "Zoot" Conner

    Both of these gentlemen were “on” when you taped this, Michael,it is a magnificent performance.Believe me I’ve never taken this “for granted”not after supporting it for six decades,both live and on records.

  3. how can i go see and support live jazz? i live in the phila. area. it is pretty bad here.

  4. I would bet that there is some live jazz in Philadelphia. Can anyone help Peter out?
