You won’t believe the goodness in store from the Complete Morton Project — that’s Andrew Oliver, piano, and David Horniblow, reeds. Reliable and inspired, they have been providing weekly transfusions of what Ruby Braff called “aesthetic vitamins.”
Here’s the latest Offering, and it’s deeply satisfying. The sensitive yet mobile BLUE BLOOD BLUES, a performance that seems simultaneously “on-the-spot” and the result of decades of study-into-play, and vice versa. Those sounds!

Words fail me — but David and Andrew do not, not in the slightest. Visit the Complete Morton Project for more joyous edification, even at slow tempos. (I know it is futile to rail about such things, but when I see that fewer than a hundred people have subscribed to the CMP — a pittance in the cyber-world — while other “music” phenomena have nearly ten thousand subscribers, I wonder . . . . )
May your happiness increase!
