Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

Sunday Music Blogging - Live Jazz Edition, Part 2

Last week I posted  a couple tunes from our Up Jumped Spring Concert.  Here are a couple more.

Blue Samuel is a great Sammy Nestico tune, based on Blue Daniel, an original composition by the Motor City's own tragic trombone genius, Frank Rosolino.  Solos by Vince on guitar,  Marion on alto, Patrick on tenor,  Mike on trombone, and Ryan on piano.  Kodos to Tim for his soaring trumpet lead.  I'm really happy with the way this turned out

Howdiz Songo? is by Gordon Goodwin.  It's more tricky than difficult, but the layered complexity, especially in the ensemble section following Ryan's piano montuno, makes it quite a challenge.  I'm pleased with the ensemble performance here.  Solos by Joe on alto, me on trombone, Vince on guitar and Marion on soprano.
