THAT’S THE WAY YOU SPELL “NEW YORK” (July 25, 2015)

I think if Bill de Blasio knew about this video, he would make it the Official New York Song of Welcome.  It has everything, doesn’t it?  Joy, playfulness, knife and fork, bottle and a cork, waiters crossing to and fro . . . and glorious hot music.  All of this happened at Fraunces Tavern (54 Pearl Street) at their regular Saturday jazz brunch, on July 25. 2015.

Music provided by Rob Adkins, string bass; Craig Ventresco, guitar; Mike Davis, cornet; guest luminary Tamar Korn, cosmic-traveler.  The song is a late Jelly Roll Morton composition (1940?) GOOD OLD NEW YORK:

Even if you were feeling good before this, don’t you feel better?

May your happiness increase!

  1. Michael:

    Is there nothing in the camera realm that would enable you to get more light on your subjects? This video is really off putting by its dimness.

  2. Dear Irv, I am sorry you were put off. My goal is to be unobtrusive, thus no extra lighting, and until someone subsidizes me with a more subtle (and more expensive camera) this is the best I can do. Pretend it’s radio! Cheers, Michael
