Promotional video for Swamp, the new album by UK's Partisans: Phil Robson: guitar; Julian Siegel: saxophone, bass clarinet; Thad Kelly: bass; Gene Calderazzo: drums. Due out on Whirlwind Recordings at the end of September, the quartet will be road-testing it (and making advance copies available) during its upcoming six-date North American tour.
I love jazz because next to my kids, it's the love of my life.
I was first exposed to jazz by Joe Rico from a tiny station in Niagara Falls in 1954 when I was 13.
The best show I ever attended was Maynard Ferguson who blew the roof off Massey Hall in the late 50s.
My advice to new listeners is to listen to everything you can and then listen again.
