Here is my penultimate offering by the Tim Laughlin All Stars featuring Connie Jones from the 2012 San Diego Jazz Fest. That’s Tim on clarinet; Connie on cornet and vocal; Mike Pittsley, trombone; Chris Dawson, piano; Katie Cavera, guitar; Marty Eggers, string bass; Hal Smith, drums.
I rejoice that there are still more video performances by this wonderful band — let’s call it by its true name, an orchestra — although I wish the supply had no end. They’re lucky to us (whatever the score is or was)!
YOU’RE LUCKY TO ME:
THAT OLD FEELING (with the warm sweet melody by Tim):
ONCE IN A WHILE (the Hot Five classic, though at a nice easy bounce):
Something pretty by Tim, CRESCENT CITY MOON:
Give that peerless rhythm section something healthy — how about CHERRY:
THE ONE I LOVE:
AFTER I SAY I’M SORRY:
What delicious lyricism — that old feeling, indeed.
May your happiness increase.
