These are videos that I like: Sam Sadigursky – “String of Pearls”


Sam Sadigursky - "Follow the Stick"Today’s featured video is from clarinetist Sam Sadigursky, who set some vintage film clips to his group’s performance of “String of Pearls,” a song taken from his excellent new release Follow the Stick.

That album, by the way, was this site’s #17 album of the year on its Best of 2015 list.  It’s got the right balance of old-school and new-school, and so often when I begin playing it, the music immediately provides that warmth and liveliness so emblematic of the 1960s Blue Note Records hard bop recordings that sit waiting on my shelf to be revisited.  Those kind of qualities are not to be undervalued.

I hope your weekend is off to a great start!
