Moon Jazz IV

Morning Moon...

Last night I mentioned getting some help with these moon tunes, and thye help continues to flow in. Sunna Gunnlaugs, a wonderful jazz pianist who I mentioned here, also recommended No Moon at All along with Polka Dots and Moonbeams, which has to be one of the coolest titles in the universe. Here is a wonderful version by Wes Montgomery...

Sunna also recommended Moon and Sand and here is Kenny Burrell eith the Gil Evans Orchestra

Both of the above tunes were on my list out there on my silent retreat being played by Marian McPartland.

Here is one that no one has recommended but the video I found keeps with the jazz guitar theme of the evening... George Van Eps and Howard Alden - play a duet on Moonglow

  1. Now you've done it! I can't wait to get back to work so I can listen! Slow dial-up at home... So you're making me wish my three-day weekend away!!!

  2. Dear Snowcatcher. so glad to have ruined your weekend ;') surely not the first thing I have ruined in my life. On the bright side, my moon jazz project will be finished Monday night and 21 tunes will be awaiting you at work. Enjoy your time until then.
