From The Archives Of Something Blue July 16 2023
Thanks Marty, today we’re going to hear a Hank Mobley song recorded by ASU students at the Craighead Forest Bandshell.
The Common Time Quartet was Josh Carter, sax; Alex Ditto, guitar; Spencer Rawlins, bass; and Chris Isom, drums. They are all still playing music around here except Josh Carter who moved to Japan.
All four are excellent musicians and the Common Time Quartet performed every week at different Jonesboro venues. So I was very pleased to get to record their well rehearsed band at the Craighead Forest Bandshell.
I met them all at ASU, playing in the jazz small groups and they also helped me with my composition recitals. I even got to play with Chris Isom again this summer at the ASU band room when he subbed in for the Bebop Beatniks drummer at one of our sessions.
Ok now, here’s the Common Time Quartet playing “This I Dig Of You” at the Craighead Forest Bandshell on June 3, 2017.
