GOLD ON THE CEILING
Caldonia (or is it Caledonia?) – Louis Jordan
VALE JOHNNY NASH
C-Jam Blues – Oscar Peterson
This is crazy and really distracting, but fabulous. I’ve started the video at the rare bit in the song where the melody (which is very simple), is played. It’s such a great video and performance to watch, but some may find it boring. Notice how he ‘sings’ his improvisational idea. Notice the all white audience!
YOUNG AT HEART

STAY WITH ME
Birthday – The Beatles
Sister Golden Hair
Vale Ennio Morricone – The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
