It's Fun to Play the Piano ... Please Pass It On!
Ed, you sure lose the bass with those cheap cassette recorders, huh? That recording is the epitome of fun. I remember about that time, I heard what I thought was the most amazing jazz set ever at a local jazz party. Ruby Braff on cornet with Dick Hyman on the Hammond. They only played about three or four pieces, and I cannot recall what they were, but the audience was definitely wowed. I sure wish I had a recording of that night. I remember Hyman played an introduction to the first piece that sounded like something from an old Bela Lugosi film. Very ominous. He brought the house down. We were literally rolling with laughter. Then they got serious and blew us all away.
Glen, another of my favorites. Strangely enough, the first time I heard this song was on the same night as the Ruby Braff/Dick Hyman performance I mentioned in a previous post. A lesser known singer called Sue Raney was on the bill, and this was one of the songs she performed that night. Wow, what a performance!! I've loved this song ever since.
