The Sunday Service with Adrian Cox & Joe Webb - Nov.15

Adrian Cox (clarinet, vocals); Joe Webb (piano)

Sunday, one o'clock, Toulouse Lautrec Jazz Club. Adrian and Joe, excellent! In the frame today were Barney Bigard, Johnny Dodds, Benny Goodman and Albert Nicholas. Straight in with Careless Love, Adrian taking a first, early vocal. Superb. There you go, Joe said Adrian leaving the stage to pianist Joe Webb. Yeah, Joe said an appreciative Adrian. Ol' Man River (showcasing Nicholas) taken at a jaunty gallop with Adrian playing a Selmer 9 Star today as his regular instrument is presently with the clarinet doctor. The change in instrument made no difference, Adrian continued to play flawlessly, as on New Orleans

Another tune with Nicholas...Old Fashioned Love featuring another vocal from our man. Avalon (one for the Goodman fans out there). Moonglow (more BG, swooping like the King of Swing) and more...What a Little Moonlight Can Do featuring great piano playing from Joe, the solo of the afternoon!  A request of Joe's, Cocktails for Two (comp. Johnston/Coslow) and onto Johnny Dodds...a request for After You've Gone (Adrian's vocal!) and Someday Sweetheart (another vocal and more of Joe's marvellous piano playing). And so to the final tune...One for the Club. It had been another great session with more than one hundred viewing the live stream. More next week.
