From The Archive August 15, 2021 – Azul and Midori – “Song For My Father”

Thanks Marty, on this weeks From The Archives Of Something Blue I’ve got a jazz standard recorded right here on the ASU campus.

ASU jazz students are the best. They play at my recitals and help me with my original compositions. So, I try to return the favor when I can and when Azul and Midori asked if I could record them in the Fine Arts Recital Hall I was pleased to help.

This wasn’t a recital. They just reserved an unscheduled time slot and took advantage of the hall’s acoustics. Playing at the session were Kevin Tinker, trumpet; Alex Ditto, guitar; Spencer Rawlins, bass; and Chris Isom, drums. I’ve enjoyed playing music with all of these musicians in ASU small groups and side projects. In fact, Kevin Tinker played in my band, Bebop Beatniks, for years and we still get to play with him sometimes.

So we all showed up. They played. I recorded. The rest is history.

Now here’s Azul and Midori playing a Horace Silver standard, “Song For My Father”, recorded right here at ASU on December 2, 2016.


And that’s Azul and Midori playing “Song For My Father” recorded December 2, 2016, in the Fine Arts Recital Hall. Don’t miss Something Blue Saturday night at 10:00 to hear more Azul and Midori, Ahmad Jamal, and Barry Harris.
