Some of the doctors were too busy for photographs, but here are four images of this superb medical group:
All this marvelous cure-by-swing took place over several days and nights at the Jazz Bash by the Bay in Monterey, California — a positively elating experience. Here’s another name for this assemblage of healing, Clint Baker’s New Orleans Jazz Band. For this weekend, they were Hal Smith, drums; Katie Cavera, string bass; Bill Reinhart, banjo; Jessica King, banjo, guitar, vocal; Clint Baker, trumpet; Riley Baker, trombone; Ryan Calloway, clarinet, and for this set, Dawn Lambeth, vocal; Carl Sonny Leyland, piano. As Clint explains, this combination of YOU’RE DRIVING ME CRAZY and MOTEN SWING was inspired by a Big Joe Turner recording (BIG JOE RIDES AGAIN, Atlantic) and the blessed Buck Clayton Jam Sessions. So now you know all you need. Prepare to be uplifted. I was and continue to be so. And I can share more performances by this group.
Keep swinging . . . it’s the opposite of emotional distancing.
May your happiness increase!
