Teddy Wilson Trio - Mr. Gershwin

Sometimes I get so wrapped up in new jazz that I forget just how much fun it can be. I think it is the no frills approach that gets me.

Here's a straight ahead recording of Gershwin tunes. Yup, heard a million of em. Good thing they hold up.

Particularly when played as well as these.

Wow, nice to see you back--I'm just flipping through blogs and found this. Have read up on Wilson recently, this will be nice to hear, I'm sure. Thank you and again, good to see you again.

I am glad to see you back as the keeper of the flame of jazz from the the pre-hardbop era

I was fortunate to see Teddy in the 1980's not long before he died. He's like Earl Hines, timeless and brilliant.
