Great to get back to the standards repertoire and the National Press Club. It's a venerable institution and the end-of-week jazz sessions are longstanding and a great pleasure with some of the best musicians in town. Tonight it was trumpet/flugel and piano with Ben Marston and John Black. Both longstanding musicians of high regard and considerable history. No charts that I noticed. Just comfy heads and varied accompaniments and intriguing solos. And no surprise to catch up with musician friends at this local, in this case my sax mate, Richard.
Ben Marston (trumpet, flugelhorn) played a duo set at the National Press Club with John Black (piano).
