Members gave their commentary on their jazz choices as follows.
John B “Bunny Berigan probably made more versions of this number than almost anyone else, on YouTube his archive from 1938 is probably his finest. He couldn't sing, but his trumpet playing & the arrangement make this a "must listen" masterpiece.” “One of the many groups from that period merging Jazz & Classical music +Indo Jazz fusion - Bosa Nova electronics etc popular for a while. I think this one works.”
Cynthia K “A seductive take on an old classic." “I think this was played as part of the recent virtual Cheltenham Jazz Festival.”
Richard I As you all probably realise by now when things grab my interest, I tend to follow them up and chase down any link I come across. I tend to think of it as chasing a rabbit down the hole. This particular rabbit came from a book I was reading by Scott Marianni featuring an adventurer - Ben Hope. In the book Hope is a Jazz fan and started play Pat Martino on his car stereo. So, I looked him up:” “Whilst playing Pat Martino - Spotify said I might also like Tal Farlow, which I did:”
Terry J “I came across this unexpected offering from Stan Getz.” “I particularly like Jazz that sounds contemporary.”
Additionally Non-Jazz Tracks were played as follows.
Members gave their commentary on their non-jazz choices as follows.
“This is to commemorate the 40th Anniversary of Bob Marley's death."
“As you know I love Classical/Pop fusion music and the best exponents are by far SKY”
“There are very few videos of Eva Cassidy singing live. For this performance she had a cold, so she may not have been at her best. It is a poignant performance. It was recorded on 3rd January 1996, she died of cancer on 2nd November the same year. ”
