F#%$ 'em if they can't take a joke.
Blogging pace is VERY SLOW, until further notice.
Beautiful song! It had a lot of pull with jazz musicians for a while: Milt Jackson, Freddie Hubbard, Bobby Hutcherson, Ramsey Lewis, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Shirley Scott, and a few others all recorded it. That Aunt Monk show from 2/14/75 has a really long performance of it, unlike the shorter Garcia/Saunders ’74 versions — it’s a pity they didn’t stretch it out more.
!Thank you for joining the conversation!
