The music that Dawn Lambeth and Conal Fowkes create sounds real, fresh, and full of feeling. Here they are at the 2016 San Diego Jazz Fest: the last set I saw on Sunday, November 27, 2016, a divine way of wrapping up a splendid weekend of music and friendship. And since this isn’t a studio session, with engineers to help things along, you can see and hear its authenticity: we watch and listen as it is being made.
and another Walter Donaldson bouquet, this one associated with Billie in 1936:
I hope that 2017 will bring more opportunities for this pair to perform and record . . . and there are a few more shining examples of heartfelt music from this set I will share with you.
May your happiness increase!
