What a night! A call for “More, more” came from the packed house. And at the end of the evening a standing ovation! The audience loved it. I was thrilled to be witness to the magic.
Luther Schutz with his unique style of sophistication and soulful singing, the swinging piano improvisations of Elisha Gullixson, with Drew Baddeley playing a fascinating virtuoso double bass, and a very smooth John Anderson on tenor saxophone, mesmerized a packed house. All at the Conway Muse, the noted entertainment spot in Skagit County, Washington. https://conwaymuse.com
We all listened intently to a wide range of tunes with major emphasis on the much beloved jazz standards. Gee, they were good. A special treat was the trio’s treatment of “Secret Love”, Doris Day’s old sock. The audience went wild. Luther said, “And we didn’t even practice [this one].”
Such a delight to witness four people enjoying themselves to the hilt and at the same time giving their all to the music. Nice. The cohesion was like listening to a freshly oiled gate. Smooth. Very smooth.
