THE IMMORTAL BOB BARNARD (1933-2022), PART FOUR: BOB, CAPTURED IN FLIGHT (Jazz at Chautauqua and with Vince Giordano’s Nighthawks)

Thinking of mid-period blue-label Decca Louis for I’M SHOOTING HIGH, with John Sheridan, piano; Frank Tate, string bass; Arnie Kinsella, drums (Jazz at Chautauqua, September 21, 2007, surreptitious audio only):

On a visit to New York in 2010, Bob sat in with Vince Giordano’s Nighthawks (personnel given in the description) for a few songs:

SOMEBODY LOVES ME:

More Louis, appropriately, with SOMEDAY YOU’LL BE SORRY:

and that hymn to staying at home, BACK IN YOUR OWN BACKYARD:

Bob brought joy then and continues to do so now.

May your happiness increase!

    Bob and John, with a fine Toronto drummer Don Vickery recorded a CD of tunes associated with New Orleans, for John Norris’ Sackville Records (SKCD2-3068). This was just after Chautauqua 2005.

    On a 2002 trip to Toronto he did a more swing-oriented one, “Wholly Cats” (Sackville SKCD2-3066) live at the Montreal Bistro, with reedman Jim Galloway, guitarist Reg Schwager and visiting Americans Keter Betts on bass and Jackie Williams on drums.
    Both are worthy additions to the Barnard catalogue, and likely not as well known as they should be.
