Overheard . . . an order at the bar at The Ear Inn on Sunday night, January 16, 2011: “I need one TIGER, two of HAPPY, an order of LOVE.” The EarRegulars, Jon-Erik Kellso, trumpet; Mark Lopeman, tenor saxophone and clarinet; Pete Martinez, clarinet; Matt Munisteri or Chris Flory, guitar; Neal Miner, string bass, were eager to comply.
The videos are extraordinarily dark. It is, after all, a New York bar in January with no light coming in from outside. Close your eyes and enjoy.
Chris Flory, always welcome, takes over the guitar chair for HAPPY FEET:
I WANT TO BE HAPPY, with Pete Martinez, paying his own visit:
A Shrine for Swing, which the EarRegulars create when / wherever they play.
May your happiness increase!
