Live performance last night at CSU San Marcos with Ed Kornhauser and Joe McNalley. Thanks to Prof. Bob Kostlan for making the concert happen!
Begin the Beguine is easily one of my favorite songs. Because of its rather byzantine form, it’s not really a great improvisational vehicle but as a complete song with words AND music by Cole Porter, it doesn’t get much more profound. I hope you enjoy this performance.
As I said, if you remember this, well, you must be pretty old. I guess that I’m pretty old… Not sure if it’s made the comeback trail yet, but it should. Pretty amazing tune. Sorry about that F# flub towards the end; it just shows my humanity and inherent fallibility, as if I needed reminding!
Way too much fun playing with Tommy Gannon and Kevin Esposito at Casa de Mañana yesterday in La Jolla. Bring on the Purim gig!

Thanks to my good friend Dr. Neil Choplin and the inimitable Ingrid Croce for the really fun gig last Thursday. Wish every performance was this lovely!
Played a nice gig last week with Tommy Gannon and Joe McNalley at Vi at La Jolla Village. Here’s a short video clip. Hope you like it!
