Here's this week's Sunday Music Muse Day post, on a much sunnier day than last week. I made some nice music purchases at the Hi-Fi Lounge and Record Archives. First up is the Duke Ellington & John Coltrane CD of the Impulse label LP. It's a iconic LP featuring titans of the jazz accompanying Duke and 'Trane. Elvin Jones, Aaron Bell, Jimmy Garrison, and Sam Woodyard, my father. That made buying this CD a no-brainer. I would buy this for the cover alone. But, of course the music is fantastic.
Bob and Mike are on the festival line up fronting their own groups. In addition, Bob and Mike play at the nightly after hours jam session the festival present, host by Bob. (Bob sure knows how to stay busy) I'll definitely will be attending the jam sessions, and as many other performances as I can. Here's the link for the festival: http://www.rochesterjazz.com/
You're bound to find something worth coming out for. Also look for the Jazz90.1 radio station tent on Gibb Street . I'm sure on-air host Derek Lucas, and Tom Pethic will be happy to see you. See you at festival. Come and enjoy.
