Saturday Music Extra: Birthday Jazz
Today is my son's 18th birthday. He's the trumpet player. Here he is playing with one of his combo groups. This is Prime Directive by Dave Holland.
Thanks, Penny. The performance was very enjoyable. Happy Birthday, Son of Penny.
I once heard Ellis Marsalis, Sr explain and demonstrate with a group of musicians how jazz improvisation is done. Fascinating and enlightening, indeed.

Nice rendition of Prime Directive by Jeffrey and his group. Here's to his Happy Birthday and to many more!

Really love that sound Penny. Happy birthday to your boy and may he continue to play better and better.
The two sax players really blend with his 'cool' trumpet. It has an authentic 60's sound to my ears.
A very happy Christmas to you all.

It is fascinating, Mimi! Jeffrey really seems to have the knack, too. He's looking at music school options for next year, so stay tuned!

Thanks, Bill! He had to take a break from jazz and his birthday to sing with his school chorus at the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra Holiday Pops concert!
