Δυο ακόμα από τους καλλιτέχνες του March born musicians club. Σε ένα κομμάτι του J. Russel Robinson, εμπνευσμένο από την ομώνυμη ταινία του 1948.
Ο μέγας Nat King Cole, live με τους Oscar Moore – gt, Leslie Prince – db σε βίντεο από το Ed Sullivan Show των late ‘40s [προτιμώ την εκτέλεση του NKC Trio από την ορχηστρική]
Και ο σημαντικός τρομπετίστας – συνθέτης Blue Mitchell, στη live βερσιόν του κομματιού [μετονομασμένου σε “A Portrait Of Jennie”] από το Blue Mitchell Live, 1995.
Το υλικό του άλμπουμ είχε ηχογραφηθεί στα middle ‘70s, στο Half Moon Bay. Η μπάντα : Mark Levine – p, Kenny Jenkins – db, Smiley Winters – d.

Two more artists from the March born musicians club, on a song by J. Russel Robinson, inspired by the 1948 film of the same name.
The great Nat King Cole, live with Oscar Moore – gt, Leslie Prince – db on a video from the Ed Sullivan Show – late ’40s [I prefer NKC Trio’s performance to the orchestral]
And the significant trumpeter – composer Blue Mitchell, on a live take of the song [renamed “A Portrait Of Jennie”] from Blue Mitchell Live, 1995.
The album’s material was recorded in the middle ’70s on Half Moon Bay. The band : Mark Levine – p, Kenny Jenkins – db, Smiley Winters – d.

* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and sometimes mine] musical selections. • Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
