“GOOD NIGHT, ANGELINE”: JON-ERIK KELLSO / EHUD ASHERIE at MEZZROW (Dec. 16, 2014)

One more by two — not only two but Two: Jon-Erik Kellso, trumpet; Ehud Asherie, piano, recorded in intimate duo at Mezzrow on December 16, 2014.

GOOD NIGHT ANGELINEMy research tells me that the song is from 1921, but my ears and heart tell me that this rendition is not only timeless but “modern” — taking in the changes in the jazz landscape over the next ninety-five years without doing the least harm to the incredibly beautiful song.

Another piece of archival source material:

SHUFFLE ALONGand now the real thing, glowing sweetly in the darkness:

It feels wonderful to sit so close to such intensely lovely creativity and to be able to share it with you.  Blessings on Messrs. Blake, Sissle, Asherie, Kellso, and Wilner.  And if you’ve missed the two earlier entries in this series of marvels, they are here and here.

May your happiness increase!

  1. Michael, I share your wonder at such marvelous creativity, I have fond memories of the many Sunday nights at the Ear In, where improvisation was the order of the day by many exceptional artists along with Mr. Kellso

  2. Please excused the unfortunate interruption, I was about to ask why, when you are in NY, you no longer give us that great pleasure which Mr.Kellso and friends afforded us. Your, John.

  3. Dear John,
    I am sorry that the compliment turned into a near-reproach. I have not always been in New York on Sunday nights, but I hope to have some video for you in future. Michael
