In October 1969, jazz guitarists Kenny Burrell, Barney Kessel and Grant Green were on a brief tour in Europe. Backed by Larry Ridley on bass and Don Lamond on drums, the quintet performed on a French TV show with a live audience that, for some reason, never aired. The music appeared more recently on the album ...

Videos: Barbara Dennerlein in the 1980s

Barbara Dennerlein is an exceptional jazz organist. Few in the U.S. are familiar with her, largely because Dennerlein has rarely toured here. Born in Munich in 1964, Dennerlein began playing the organ at age 11 in a household where her parents loved jazz. She quickly became a master of the bass foot pedals and was soon ...

One of the Best Sassy Videos Ever

One of the Best Sassy Videos Ever

Last week, Nelson Porto in Brazil sent along a link to a Sarah Vaughan video that I hadn't seen before. To me, it's by far one of the finest live videos of Sassy on stage in the second half of her career. It's a duet with Wilson Simonal, who is little known outside of Brazil but ...

Video: Carmen McRae With Clarke/Boland

Another day of Carmen McRae at JazzWax, which means you're in for another treat. Today, Bill Kirchner sent along a link to a 1970 taped performance for German TV by McRae with the Kenny Clarke-Francy Boland Big Band. It seems the taping was done without an audience. My guess is audience applause was overdubbed for the ...

Videos: Al Green Live in Concert

When it comes to stage performers who could really get an audience going, names such as Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Tina Turner, David Bowie, Little Richard and Jerry Lee Lewis come to mind. Al Green should be on that list, too. In his prime and even years after his hit records, the Reverend Green could whip ...

Videos: Peggy Lee in Action

Yesterday I didn't get done nearly as much as I needed to and it's Peggy Lee's fault. I watched one of her YouTube videos, and then one thing led to the next and today I have to work twice as hard. The good news for you is that my distraction resulted in today's post. Enjoy these ...

Color Videos: Horace Silver Quintet

Color Videos: Horace Silver Quintet

While writing yesterday, I fell into a Horace Silver groove. Funk meets hard bop, with a twist of Silver's spectacular rhythmic counterpoint and chord voicings. Which sent me onto YouTube to see what was new with Horace. There, I found a bunch of videos that had been colorized. Now you can see and hear them, too. ...
