Joe Webb & Will Sach live streaming from the kitchen - April 24

Joe Webb (piano); Will Sach (double bass)

This week Joe Webb was joined by a mainstay of the Kansas Smitty's outfit, bassist Will Sach. An upright piano standing against a white wall in Joe's kitchen, Will positioned to our pianist's left, the set kicked off with the Rube Bloom-Ted Koehler tune Truckin'. It's likely Will played without amplification, the kitchen's acoustics lending themselves to an excellent, natural sound balance. 
Ellington, Horace Silver, Oscar Peterson's Noereen's Nocturne - nothing fazes Joe! - and Larry Goldings' take on Stephen Foster's Beautiful Dreamer were but some of today's selections. At the end of the set Joe and Will were legging it over to Kansas Smitty's for a last minute rehearsal ahead of this evening's Keith Jarrett set (8:00pm). To close, a doddle of a number...Toledo Blues as played by the GOAT (Greatest of All Time, common parlance in sporting circles), the one and only Art Tatum. Yes, nothing fazes Joe Webb. Two great musicians, one great set.

Ah! "Truckin'" - great song. Love the Fats Waller version. Sinatra also recorded it as "Everybody's Twistin'" and Brian Fisher used to sing a version that rhymed but is inappropriate for this site...!
