This Sunday Music Muse Day actually finds it feeling like Spring. I got to go shopping with just a light sweatshirt on. At Bop Shop Records, I picked up John Stowell / Michael Zilber Quartet Basement Blues. It's a tasty and energetic outing with Stowell on guitar and Zilber on saxophones and piano. This 2016 session is their third recording together. Eight out of the ten tunes are originals by members of the band, with a tune by Bill Evens (Very Early) and Jerome Kern ( Nobody Else But Me). It a nice way to greet the Spring.
Tom Kohn and the staff were very helpful, even letting me search their basement stash of Ellington stock. after not finding the Piano in the Foreground album in main floor stacks. I did found a copy, and picked up another Storyville Duke Ellington and his Orchestra, with Johnny Hodges and his Orchestra, because it had a band photo with Sam in it. Now I have to find good spot to mount both covers.
Seems like Spring finally here to stay. Try to enjoy it to the fullest. Good tunes always helps.
