A hot time was had by all last Monday night at the Breakwater in Monona, Wisconsin, when the Rhythm Aces swung out: Roy Rubinstein, trombone; Kim Cusack, clarinet, alto saxophone, vocal; Andy Schumm, cornet, clarinet; Jim Barrett, banjo; John Widdicombe, string bass. Here is the first part of their heated rhapsody.
And some more of that good noise.
MY MONDAY DATE (as scored for two clarinets and rhythm section, in honor of Jimmie Noone’s Apex Club Orchestra):
TROG’S BLUES (by and about clarinetist / cartoonist Wally Fawkes):
BILL BAILEY (sung by Kim with the essential-to-the-narrative verse):
More to come, thank goodness.
May your happiness increase!
