John Stowell & Jamie Taylor - I Should Care
Footage of John and I rehearsing for a weekend of gigs and teaching together in the North of England, 14-17 Oct 2022. We start here with a bit of improvised counterpoint, then a solo chorus each, followed by a statement of the written theme at the very end. We have a bit of live footage from the trip as well, which I hope to share at some point. Although John and I have been friends for several years, this was some of the first face-to-face playing we've managed to do. Prior to that, we were trading choruses on different continents over a Zoom connection. Better than nothing, obviously, but nowhere near as much fun as this was!
Prelude To A Kiss, Jamie Taylor solo - Seven Arts, Leeds
Short video of my feature on this beautiful Duke Ellington ballad, taken from the "Means And Ends" gig at Seven Arts, Leeds, UK on 11/10/20. I'm hoping to add some full band footage of this gig in due course. At time of writing, this was my last gig and who knows when we can do these things again? Hope you enjoy anyway, JT
