Another serving of musical splendor: expertise and passion in equal measure.  Visit here for the first four performances (BOGALUSA STRUT, SOMEDAY SWEETHEART, WHO’S SORRY NOW, TISHOMINGO BLUES) and for details.

Music does indeed speak louder than words, so here’s more, the best kind.

WEARY BLUES:

YOU TELL ME YOUR DREAM (swing out, Brian!):

FIDGETY FEET:

PRETTY BABY:

DO YOU EVER THINK OF ME?:

OLD FASHIONED LOVE:

Even in darkness, joy is all around us, and these performances — so generous! — are powerful reminders.

May your happiness increase!

    Thank you Johnny,for remembering me,even though I haven’t been able to get to the INN for over two years.First off,I lost my car to a terrible rear end accident in Jan.2016,it was towed away that night and I never saw it again,then in June I injured my ankles and as of today,they are not healed yet.So,I have no car,I can hardly walk so,obviously,I can’t go on the subway and walk all over town.I can’t work either,which,complicates things further…But I expect to be back in harness soon,well,whatever,and then I’ll be able to join the fun.Keep up the happy times at the INN until I can get there.

    What a fine group! Jon-Erik once shows his versatility going from trad here to bop riffs on Dan Block’s side “From to Bop”.This set complements set one very nicely.

  3. Many thanks for posting the eight little gems in two parts – simply wonderful!!

    Your efforts are deeply appreciated.

    All the very best
