SIMPLY ELOQUENT: DAN BARRETT and JOEL FORBES (Cleveland Classic Jazz Party, September 16, 2017)

As a way for musicians to express themselves, the duet can be compelling, also greatly revealing: no place to hide.  But with Dan Barrett, trombone, and Joel Forbes, string bass, there’s no reason for concealment.

Here they are, in duet on LULLABY OF THE LEAVES, performed at the much-missed Cleveland Classic Jazz Party on September 16, 2017:

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!: TED BROWN / MICHAEL KANAN / MURRAY WALL / TARO OKAMOTO: Hotel Kitano, Jan. 12, 2011

This posting came about because at JAZZ LIVES, we take our mission seriously.  And when a trusted reader wrote in just an hour ago to say, “I was at Ted’s gig at the Kitano — it was one of the great evenings of jazz I remember.  Do you think you could post another couple of the swinging tracks?  He swung that night!”

Nothing simpler.  With pleasure!
