Swing court 2019 is now in session. All rise!
Exhibits C: – F
Ricky Alexander made a wonderful debut CD, STRIKE UP THE BAND, which I’ve reviewed here. And then he brought a swinging quartet to Cafe Bohemia (Chris Gelb, drums; Adam Moezinia, guitar; Daniel Duke, string bass) on November 22, 2019 — exhibits here, and here.
But it would be imprudent — even selfish — to keep all the music the quartet made to myself, so here are five more performances to brighten the skies, wherever you find yourself.
Ricky’s own I KNEW I LOVED YOU:
The rueful and little-known Cole Porter gem AFTER YOU, WHO?:
Frank Loesser’s THE LADY’S IN LOVE WITH YOU:
Of course there will be more from Ricky and this delightful quartet, and there will be more from sessions at Cafe Bohemia. And you might want to investigate the new CD (or “vinyl”)here. Yes, the holidays are over, but one can always give gifts.
May your happiness increase!
