It’s never too early to get ready.
Is everyone here? Has everyone got their psychic Metrocards? Follow me down to 326 Spring Street, although there’s no rush. In cyberspace there is no worry about getting a good seat at The Ear Inn.
This Sunday night, we are journeying to September 5, 2010. I won’t say “journeying back,” because it’s all timeless. As is the music, in this case created by Jon-Erik Kellso, trumpet; Dmitry Baevsky, alto saxophone; Ray Macchiarola, guitar; Neal Miner, string bass — with guest appearances by Mark Lopeman, tenor saxophone; Danny Tobias, trumpet.
WHEN I GROW TOO OLD TO DREAM:
WHEN I GROW TOO OLD TO DREAM (concluded):
LADY BE GOOD (adding Danny to the quartet):
BLUES (with Mark making it a sextet):
A return to the quartet for a hot beverage in swing, TEA FOR TWO:
I hope you heard all that! It is worth hearing over and over.
This post marks six months of our celebration of The Ear Inn and The EarRegulars. My hope, expressed often, is that sometime in the next six months we can all visit this life-affirming scene in tangible reality. Until that time, I will keep the celebration going: the musicians and the Ear Inn deserve no less.
May your happiness increase!
