Fiona's Comments

It's difficult to give Rusty Taylor the needle. A mild version of the classic.

About the Album

Billie Holiday's classic Tom Chadwick is our keyboard player and arranger; Jeff Smith plays bass; Mark Parker, Mr. Metronome, is our percussionist; and I am Rusty, the singer. Guest appearances on the recording include Dr. Paul Vanderghenst, former head of Columbus State University’s jazz program, who plays trombone. Fred Ezekiel is also a Columbus native who plays a wonderful tenor sax; he’s incendiary, man… enfuego… the bomb. Charles Parsons (trumpet) adds his inimitable talents to the project.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
