Resurrecting this thread with arguably the greatest Jazz oboist (and accomplished saxophonist) Yusef Lateef, playing a 12 bar blues classic.

I don't think this qualifies as promotion...One of my clients is a jazz ensemble. They are getting some pretty good reviews on their latest album, a reimagining of Billie Holiday. If you like jazz, these are lesser known charts by Holiday.

Can't go wrong doing a Lady Day homage. She was a major influence on Frank Sinatra, among others.

I enjoy quite a few different musical genres and jazz is one of my favorites.  My dad was a huge fan so I grew up with it.

Julie, welcome to the thread, and great choice. I saw Mr. Silver perform once. In addition to the many great compositions he wrote, he was a super funky pianist, when he wanted to be. But to get the album cover in your post, you need to click the Video button and insert the youtube link that way, rather than as a regular link, and choose large size.

Since the last piece had a bossa nova beat, how about the princess of the bossa nova. Nice medley, ending with a definitive rendition of Garota de Ipanema in both Portuguese and English

Thanks John but WHERE is the video button?  I'm not seeing it on the posting toolbar.
