Thanks for the memory! This delightful original by Jon De Lucia is based on the harmonies of a familiar song (hunt: the two titles are similar). The Octet for this performance is Jon, alto saxophone, alto clarinet; John Ludlow, alto; Marc Schwartz, tenor; Jay Rattman, tenor, clarinet; Andrew Hadro, baritone, bass clarinet; Ted Brown, tenor saxophone; Ray Gallon, piano; Aidan O’Donnell, string bass; Steve Little, drums.
Yes, the Ted Brown! And the Steve Little!
This is from Jon’s presentation of arrangements by Jimmy Giuffre, Ted, and himself, performed at The Drawing Room (56 Willoughby Street in Brooklyn, New York) on October 22, 2016.
The view on my video is something one can (or must?) adjust to; the sound is decent. BUT Jon and Co. will be releasing some of the music performed on this glorious evening on an actual compact disc — and I suppose downloads. I’ll let you know more as I find out the details.
For the moment, don’t forget to resemble.
May your happiness increase!
