“IS IT WARM IN HERE OR IS IT JUST THE BAND?” CLINT BAKER’S NEW ORLEANS JAZZ BAND IN PISMO BEACH, JANUARY 26, 2014 (Part Two)

Loosening our collars and wiping our brows — all in the name of hot music.

Clint Baker’s New Orleans Jazz Band swung out on Sunday, January 26, 2014, at the Central Coast Hot Jazz Society’s concert held in Pismo Beach.  Clint himself played trombone and euphonium and sang.  With him were Marc Caparone, cornet; Mike Baird, reeds; Carl Sonny Leyland, piano, vocal; Bill Reinhart, banjo; Katie Cavera, string bass and vocals; Jeff Hamilton, drums. The wonderful Dawn Lambeth sang a few songs, which you can hear and see here.

If you didn’t make it down to Pismo, here’s the first instrumental set.

And a second helping of delightful music:

William H. Tyers’ PANAMA (with a parasol parade, no extra charge):

Katie Cavera asks, respectfully, WON’T YOU COME HOME, BILL BAILEY?:

Headgear or other clothing optional, but PUT ON YOUR OLD GREY BONNET:

J.C. Higginbotham asks, politely, GIVE ME YOUR TELEPHONE NUMBER:

After the number is received, the proper response might be I WOULD DO ANYTHING FOR YOU (thanks to Alex Hill and Claude Hopkins):

Clint and his bands are active at a variety of gigs and festivals and swing dances.  If you want to experience this hot music for yourself, click  here to plan your next swing outing.

May your happiness increase!

HOTTER THAN THAT! CLINT BAKER’S NEW ORLEANS JAZZ BAND IN PISMO BEACH, JANUARY 26, 2014 (Part One)

It was indeed warm in Pismo Beach, but my title refers to what was happening indoors.

Clint Baker’s New Orleans Jazz Band swung out this last Sunday, January 26, 2014, at the Central Coast Hot Jazz Society’s concert held in Pismo Beach.  Clint himself played trombone and euphonium and sang.  With him were Marc Caparone, cornet; Mike Baird, reeds; Carl Sonny Leyland, piano, vocal; Bill Reinhart, banjo; Katie Cavera, string bass and vocals; Jeff Hamilton, drums. The wonderful Dawn Lambeth sang a few songs, which you can hear and see here.

Here’s another helping of delightful music.

Paul Barbarin’s THE SECOND LINE:

Father Leyland explains it all with BEALE STREET BLUES:

WHEN I GROW TOO OLD TO DREAM:

A special request from Dottie Baird, not to be ignored: WHEN MY DREAMBOAT COMES HOME:

EVERYBODY LOVES MY BABY:

DAWN LAMBETH SWINGS SWEETLY WITH CLINT BAKER’S NEW ORLEANS JAZZ BAND: January 26, 2014

Ladies and gentlemen, a real singer.  No tricks, no emoting.  Just someone with a lovely multi-hued voice, swinging with the band, delighting in the melody and the words, never getting in the way of the song.

She’s one of our favorites, Dawn Lambeth.

Here she is with the equally rewarding New Orleans Jazz Band of Clint Baker, at an afternoon session sponsored by the Central Coast Hot Jazz Society in Pismo Beach, January 26, 2014.  That’s Clint, trombone / euphonium; Marc Caparone, cornet; Mike Baird, clarinet / alto; Carl Sonny Leyland, piano; Bill Reinhart, banjo; Katie Cavera, string bass; Jeff Hamilton, drums.

Aligning ourselves with the calendar, SUNDAY:

AS LONG AS I LIVE:

I’M FOREVER BLOWING BUBBLES:

EMALINE:

I CRIED FOR YOU:

I wish many singers, young and older, new and presumably wise and experienced, would savor and study the singing of Ms. Lambeth — she isn’t didactic, but by her example we could learn a great deal about subtle, convincing music.

May your happiness increase!
