Readers of JAZZ LIVES know how deeply I and others treasure the Sunday-evening gatherings of kindred enlightened souls that take place at The Ear Inn, 326 Spring Street, Soho, New York City. Here is some joy from June 10, with the personnel listed above: Jon-Erik Kellso, trumpet and special mutations; Matt Munisteri, guitar; Scott Robinson, reeds and brass cross-species permutations [translation: tenor saxophone, alto clarinet; miniature French horn]; Neal Miner, string bass.
Here are a few highlights, delights all.
Some Fats by way of Louis, BLUE, TURNING GREY OVER YOU:
YOU BROUGHT A NEW KIND OF LOVE TO ME (its beginning excised because of a collision between my camera and an eager patron):
Don Redman’s soulful plaint, GEE, BABY, AIN’T I GOOD TO YOU?:
More Fats! I’VE GOT A FEELING I’M FALLING with Scott’s loping, tender solo reading of the verse:
See you at The Ear around 7 some sweet Sunday. And save me a barstool.
May your happiness increase!
