August 18, 2021: Till the Well Runs Dry

Title spot this week goes to Miss T & The Mad Tubes (featuring Big Jay McNeely) – there are just a handful of YouTube videos that came up for them, but still some good ones, like this!

Also this week: Ella Fitzgerald and Muguette, back to back, along with Mat Najean Jazz Band, Hot Swing Sextet, Ultrafaux, Mamie Minch, Birch Pereira & the Gin Joints, and lots more. Enjoy!

May 5, 2021: If You See My Mom

It doesn’t sound quite as cool when it’s not in French, I suppose. Still a classic, swinging tune from Sidney Bechet, written back in 1952, with lyrics by Jean Broussolle. I wasn’t able to track down a downloadable version of the jam I really wanted to play, but since this is the internet, right here, I can point you to a YouTube link!

So good.

As for the show itself, kicking off with a great instrumental version of said tune from the Midnight in Paris soundtrack, with Patrick Bartley on clarinet, and then playing another tune from Avalon Jazz Band (to kind of make up the difference) and then it’s a really, really good two hours of tunes this week.

No really, this show is killer, you should listen to it. Happy listening and happy dancing!
