A number of people wrote in enthusiastically about the music I’d posted yesterday — Conal Fowkes, piano and vocal; Dan Block, clarinet — playing WAITING AT THE END OF THE ROAD at Chez Josephine on West 42nd Street in New York — and asking kindly if there was more like that in the JAZZ LIVES audio larder.
There is! (There are?)
Here are five more beauties from that gig, one week ago.
Early Ellington, a song I’ve never heard live, SWEET MAMA:
Another rarely played one, THE SECOND TIME AROUND:
Bechet’s SI TU VOIS MA MERE:
And I was at Chez Josephine last night, with camera and enthusiasm, and you will hear and see more from Conal and Dan soon. A privilege to be there.
May your happiness increase!
