“BLACK BEAUTY”: JON-ERIK KELLSO and EHUD ASHERIE and WILL ANDERSON at MEZZROW (December 16, 2014)

Beauties indeed: the music that Jon-Erik (trumpet) and Ehud (piano) create in many situations.  Here, as an utterly empathic duet, they make their way through Ellington’s BLACK BEAUTY in a performance that melds tenderness and gentle swing.  One for Artie Whetsol.  But wait.  There’s more — a surprise appearance by Will Anderson on clarinet:

I’ve posted videos of other performances from this session at Mezzrow — a new jazz club on West Tenth Street, full of energy and love — here — and I am delighted that this new club is thriving.  I hope it is always full of attentive listeners.

May your happiness increase!

    A great tune and a performance worthy of it.Mr.Kellso doesn’t win any polls Which tells something about the validity of them.He is a fine player who plays with soul and technique.
