Switzerland


~ Stormy Weather Blues ~

From the Jazz In Concert series, recorded in Bern, Switzerland 1986 with Barbara Dennerlein doing amazing things on a Hammond B3 and Emily jamming away on a sassy little Gibson ES 125 (which may have been borrowed since she never mentions owning one or plays it at later performances.)
This is a lovely and soulful original from Barbara herself, showcasing her talents as a player and composer. A brilliant song performed never better than by this masterful array of musicians on this classic live recording. For more information check out Barbara’s website at the following link:

~ Tribute To Charlie ~

This is another Dennerlein composition that swings like nobody’s business! I must confess, I didn’t know Barbara’s work before viewing these shows but enough can’t be said about her abilities on the B3 and her feel for jazz, it’s very impressive. She is a world class musician and numerous videos are available on YouTube that display her talents, so don’t miss out on seeing more of her concerts there.

~ My Latin Brother ~

This selection from the Dennerlein Switzerland show highlighted below is a fabulous George Benson tune that Emily loved and played in many live venues and spotlights her gift for bossa nova. Sonny Fortune’s flute gives it a beautiful Latin groove and as usual, Barbara’s keyboard adds a gorgeous flair .
