Had a great weekend, although the crowds were seriously down (worst Saturday night in 7 years) playing the music of Creed Taylor or more specfically the music recorded by Creed Taylor his CTI label. Some stellar playing by everyone: Jesse Cahill on drums, Rene Worst on bass, Chris Gestrin on rhodes and moog, Jack Duncan on percussion and the often burning Thomas Marriott on trumpet!
Today I’m at the Tangent Cafe on Commercial Drive from 4pm to 7 with Joe Poole on drums and Russ Botten on bass. Looking very forward to this hit!
The morning soundtrack is a good one! MILT JACKSON – Night Mist featuring some very swinging alto saxophone by Eddie Cleanhead Vinson along with Lockjaw Davis, Sweets Edison, Ray Brown, Art Hillery and Larance Marable!
