Thanks Marty, today we’re hearing a jazz standard played at KASU Jazz Thursday.
Brandon Moore only spent one year in the ASU Jazz Program but it was a very eventful year. Brandon and his brother Tim rehearsed the band Caprice and I was able to record their recital in the band room. They played so good that I booked them for KASU Jazz Thursday on January 24, 2013. They played a great show and it wasn’t much later that they talked to me about recording the Caprice album, “from dawn til dusk”, which has become a favorite here at KASU.
After a year at ASU Brandon went on to continue his jazz studies at North Texas State and now he teaches, composes, and plays at Nashville, Tennessee. On Something Blue this week I will feature some of his current work.
At their Jazz Thursday show they played mostly standards including this great version of the Erroll Garner song “Misty”, featuring Brandon Moore on saxophone.
