DJ Hairy Larry Presents Bebop Beatniks Playing Sail Boats
From The Archives Of Something Blue 2023-11-05
Thanks Marty. Today we’re going to hear an original jazz song recorded this year at Blues Fest.
September 24, 2023, was the second Blues Fest with Doug Butler as stage manager. Vivian and I did Blues Fest for 25 years before we retired and it’s great to have someone else doing all the work while we get to go and enjoy the music.
So, thanks Doug.
I wrote “Sail Boats” during the pandemic and it’s featured on my “Hairy Larry Livestreams” album. When Bebop Beatniks started playing again it became a quick favorite and our trombonist, Rike Robinson, suggested that I write lyrics for it. So, one day, when I was driving in the car, I wrote the first verse. It’s a fantastic lyric all full of nautical references and song titles.
So, thanks Rike.
