More delicious music from a completely satisfying evening session at Luca’s Jazz Corner (inside the Cavatappo Grill and Wine Bar at 1712 First Avenue, New York City) performed by Jon-Erik Kellso, Evan Arntzen, Ehud Asherie, Marion Felder. Here is the first part, with four extended selections.
And four more.
Walter Donaldson’s IT’S BEEN SO LONG:
FAST AS A BASTARD (Dick Wellstood and Kenny Davern’s variation on Ellington’s JUBILEE STOMP):
BALLIN’ THE JACK (with verse):
ROYAL GARDEN BLUES:
You and I know all about “Mercury in retrograde,” the land of expired parking meters, disastrous gravity in the kitchen, and other reminders of how fragile we really are. Obviously the Swing Planets were all affectionately on their proper orbits that night, as you’ve heard. More to come.
May your happiness increase!
