David Boeddinghaus is a superb pianist and arranger, but I’ve never had the pleasure of watching him time-travel back to the Twenties in ways exuberant and exact. Here he is at the 2014 Whitley Bay Classic Jazz Party, with Andy Schumm, cornet; Kristoffer Kompen, trombone; Mauro Porro, Matthias Seuffert [only on SHE’S CRYING FOR ME], reeds; Spats Langham, banjo; Malcolm Sked, brass bass; Josh Duffee, drums.
SHE’S CRYING FOR ME:
FIREWORKS (harking back to the Original Memphis Five, not Louis and Earl):
A JAZZ HOLIDAY:
FRESHMAN HOP (all hail Jack Pettis!):
WALKIN’ THE DOG (in honor of Carmichael’s Collegians):
What fine hot music they make. And there’s more to come in November 2015 at
May your happiness increase!
