From The Archive May 9, 2021 – Rob Alley Trio – “So What”

Thanks Marty, this week on From The Archives we’ve got a jazz standard recorded at the Craighead Forest Bandshell.

Rob Alley taught at ASU and I recorded him several times at The Edge Coffeehouse so I was thrilled when I was able to book him to play at the bandshell on June 21, 2009. Playing with Rob Alley was David Eckert on bass and Mike Overall, drums. The audience loved their set of jazz standards. I will be playing more from this show on Something Blue this week.

For From The Archives I picked one of the most famous songs in jazz history. a Miles Davis composition from “Kind Of Blue”, here’s the Rob Alley Trio playing “So What”.


And that’s the Rob Alley Trio playing “So What” at the Craighead Forest bandshell on June 21, 2009.
