More fun! Bruce Forman, John Clayton, and Jeff Hamilton reunite to record their mentor’s original instruments from the iconic recording sessions!
Now, through great fortune and some telepathic intervention, I have been able to take over as caretaker of Barney’s guitar, the one he played on almost every gig and jazz recording, throughout his whole career. Ray’s bass and Shelly’s drums are also in hand, now we are ready. This is not a tribute in the classic sense, we won’t be playing their arrangements or solos, but we will be embracing the spirit of those seminal recordings and making things up on the spot, as they did over sixty years ago. They taught us these skills! John, Jeff, and I have played together before in myriad situations, and we have all played with every one of these musical heroes. This is a dream come true…and I wholeheartedly invite your participation on this journey, filled with love, joy, respect, and admiration.
