The Jazzkickers play Al Baker's
Today the Jazzkickers played a lunchtime gig at Al Baker's in Eagan, MN, for a Red Hat Society event on behalf of the American Heart Association. I played my Gibson Les Paul Elegant through a Fender Princeton Chorus amp. Numbers included "Take the A Train", "All Blues", "In a Mellow Tone", and "Well You Needn't", all great songs from the American jazz songbook. Everyone was in fine form, with Carmin Pluntz on saxophone, Tim Wick on keyboards, Steve Proper on bass guitar, and Gary Berosik on drums. This is far and away my favorite band to play with, so I hope we get more opportunities to play together in the future.
