Six String Jazz - Killer Joe.mp3

Today we played "Killer Joe," a jazz standard composed in 1954 by Benny Golson whose spoken word introduction about a fictional jivester character he describes as "someone who wears a very neatly pressed double-breasted, form-fitting pin-striped suit with a chain that dangles from under one side of his coat…who likes to play the horses, who is most certainly a ladies man and is very much against manual labor." He is also not averse to taking money from the ladies.

Our take here:


Players:

Chris Emkey, piano
Don Fishel, flute
Doug Frame, drums
Wayne Renardson, fretless bass
