MUSINGS IN RHYTHM: HARRY ALLEN and KEITH INGHAM at JAZZ AT CHAUTAUQUA (Sept. 17, 2011)

I think my description is accurate: two deep players united by mutual admiration and a love for melody and where it might go — performing leisurely duets at Jazz at Chautauqua on some less-familiar songs.  Close your eyes and go deeply inside this lovely music!

BAUBLES, BANGLES, AND BEADS (from the musical KISMET — based on the music of Borodin, if I recall correctly) seguing into THE DRIFTERS:

A lovely song I’d never heard before — written by Percy Faith — MAYBE SEPTEMBER:

And to close, music by Irving Berlin for Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, CHANGE PARTNERS:

By the way, Harry often tours Europe and the UK.  I know that Keith would be delighted to visit his homeland for a playing tour.  Any UK bookers reading JAZZ LIVES?  They should be!
