Rifftides reader Mike Harris responded to last week’s post about the passing of pianist Frank Collett (pictured) and the outpouring of comments about him.
Testifying to what all those folks have been saying, (plus, it will really cheer you up), watch this video of Frank on piano with the Terry Gibbs Quartet as they play “I’m Gettin’ Sentimental Over You.” Collett’s solo is memorable! Andy Simpkins is on bass. The drummer is Jimmie Smith. This from a 1980 program on Los Angeles television station KCET.
