The Good, The Bad & The Beautiful Ladies

Bruno Leicht of Cologne, Germany—trumpeter, composer, teacher, and frequent commenter to this blog—has dedicated a four-part suite to Rifftides. The work is based on George Gershwin’s “Oh, Lady Be Good” and played by a band of Bruno’s students. On his web log, Brew Lite’s Jazz Tales, he explains the suite’s gensis and makeup, and links to the band’s performance at a festival earlier this month. The Rifftides staff is, to say the least, flattered. Thank you, Bruno. To go to Brew Lite’s Jazz Tales, click here.

    At times Bruno’s recording feels a bit like Dixie suddenly is part of Cologne. And the flutist sounds particularly summerly – double thumbs up.
