Thanks Marty, this week I’m featuring a Jonesboro pianist playing a short medley.
On February 23, 2012, I booked Bob Sloan to play at Jazz Thursday at TheArts@311. Bob was a very talented musician and he related well to the audience from on stage. Near the end of his set he played this medley of two of my favorite songs, “Stella By Starlight” and “My Funny Valentine”.
I met him at Blues Alley in Jonesboro where he would occasionally come and volunteer a short set of jazz piano. I’ve played with him and presented him but unfortunately I only got to work with him a few more times before he passed on.
Now here’s Bob Sloan playing “Stella By Starlight” and “My Funny Valentine”.
And that’s Bob Sloan playing “Stella By Starlight” and “My Funny Valentine” on February 23, 2012 at TheArts@311 in downtown Jonesboro.
