Its the same voice as when he plays Tenor, always wonderful! Thanks for posting.I just played this from a CD I bought by mistake and it really touched me.
A lovely song written by Mal Waldron which seems topical, I didn't realise that Archie Shepp could play alto like this.
Sorry to hear that Rhys. A similar story last week from a friend of mine.Day three and unable to see my mum, whose care home has now closed to all visitors.
But here's a great tune by Theo Travis.
@rhysonsax I want to personally thank you for introducing me to all of these great artists and recordings that I otherwise wouldn't have known about. That includes the wonderful version of "Sunny Side of the Street" by Bob Wilber and Kenny Davern we collaborated on to play and record the transcription.
Re the tune at 4:42, Got it! Night Train is really fun (not least when it includes a honkin' tenor). Thanks for posting these.Day 9 and hoping to be able to video call my mum in her care home later today.
Today's tune is "Happy Go Lucky Local" by written by Duke Ellington and performed here in concert by the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra. Listen for all those great railway sound effects.
Who recognises the tune at about 4:42 ?
