SUNSET AND THE MOCKINGBIRD

Another beautiful find on iTunes today!  PIANIST TOMMY FLANAGAN and HIS TRIO featuring PETER WASHINGTON bass and LEWIS NASH drums.  SUNSET AND THE MOCKINGBIRD was recorded live at The Village Vanguard on Flanagan’s 67th birthday.  The trio is killing on this date.  The tunes are very cool. Much lesser known gems if you will. Perhaps Tin Tin Deo is the tune that is the most familiar, at least to me.  This track is worth the price of the recording alone. It starts with a very tasty 90 second solo piano intro followed by some cool trading between Flanagan and Nash before Washington comes in to state the head.  I have always loved this tune.  Id give anything to have been there on this night.  Long live Tommy Flanagan!
