Thanks Marty, this week on From The Archives we’re featuring more jazz recorded right here in Jonesboro.
Caprice was a student band at ASU and I had been recording their recitals. When they decided to record an album they asked me and I was very excited to record these great songwriters and musicians. After all the work they had put into developing their band sound it was important to me to get their songs down before Tim Moore and Brandon Moore left ASU to continue their jazz education at North Texas State.
Playing in Caprice were Tim Moore, piano; Brandon Moore, sax; Alex Ditto, guitar; Matt Bounds, bass; and Addison Boling, drums.
Here they are now playing a Brandon Moore composition, “Papa Samba”.
And that’s Caprice playing “Papa Samba” recorded in Jonesboro and released on their CD, “from dawn til dusk”.
Tune in to Something Blue Saturday night at 10:00 to hear “Blues for Larry” and more by Caprice, as well as Erroll Garner, Greg Skaff, and Matana Roberts.
This is Hairy Larry inviting you to enjoy Something Blue every Saturday night at ten. This week we’re featuring Erroll Garner, Caprice, Greg Skaff, and Matana Roberts. For more about the show visit the Something Blue website at sbblues.com.
