MORE OF THE GOOD STUFF: CONAL FOWKES and DAN BLOCK at CHEZ JOSEPHINE, MAY 30, 2015

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:

SWEET SUE:

JUST FRIENDS:

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!

    A nice duo,to say the least,I’d never heard Conal’s Tatumsque runs before.I think Dan could play the Manhattan subway schedule and make it swing.Will he be bringing his Selmer Mark VI along or it is verboten for the room?Thanks for the videos,Michael-your vigilance and dedication to the music i love is forever inspiring.l

  2. as always-thank you.

  3. ..and a big thank you from me, dear Michael. You know how much I appreciate ALL of the videos you so generously post. I love you, dear nephew!…Auntie
