I followed this band faithfully at the 2017 San Diego Jazz Fest and they didn’t disappoint. The credits are above; the wonderful music is below. Festival producers, take note(s)!
NOBODY’S SWEETHEART NOW (how sad, how true):
LULLABY OF THE LEAVES, one of the two great Bernice Petkere songs:
LOUISE (thanks to Richard Whiting: I think of Lester, Teddy, Pee Wee, and a Rodney Dangerfield joke):
CHINA BOY (don’t miss Kris’ bridge):
YOU TOOK ADVANTAGE OF ME (savor Larry — bringing the blues — and Hal on this one, especially):
More to come — eager and expert — but this band is, in Eddie Condon’s words, too good to ignore.
May your happiness increase!
