Johnathan Blake & Kenny Barron - Well You Needn't
I mentioned in my Monday post that my friend Johnathan Blake is raising money to release his debut solo album. Here's a couple of clips of Blake in action with Kenny Barron:
I first met Johnathan in 2009 while he was doing some substitute teaching at the University of Toronto. Johnathan plays really great and I've especially been digging his playing with Tom Harrell's group, Donny McCaslin trio date "Recommended Tools" and on Omer Avital's recent quintet release "Live at Smalls". In particular the track "Blues for Tardy" is really worth a listen.
