DJ Hairy Larry Presents Jay Shepherd Playing Footprints - 2023-03-12 03:04 PM

DJ Hairy Larry Presents Jay Shepherd Playing Footprints
From the Archives Of Something Blue March 12, 2023

Thanks Marty, today we're hearing a Wayne Shorter standard played by Jay Shepherd at the Delta Jazz Workshop.

I took Jazz Arranging with Jay Shepherd and we both had a good class. Jay continued on to take a Masters in guitar performance and then taught at ASU until he moved to the other side of the state. I would still see him every year at the Delta Jazz Workshop where we worked together again teaching jazz improvisation and playing in the workshop's small groups.

On July 12, 2016, it was Jay's turn to entertain the Delta Jazz Workshop attendees. Playing with Jay were Tyler Washam - piano, Shane Chastain - piano, Terrell Montgomery - bass, and Keyven Dunn - drums. All except Shane were students at ASU. All from Northeast Arkansas except Keyven Dunn who was from Poplar Bluff, Missouri, before he attended ASU.

Wayne Shorter is one of the most influential jazz composers of all time. His standard, "Footprints" is one of the most frequently covered jazz songs.

So now, recorded live in the Fine Arts Recital Hall on July 12, 2016, here's Jay Shepherd playing "Footprints".

And that's Jay Shepherd playing "Footprints" at the Delta Jazz Workshop right here at ASU. Don't miss Something Blue, Saturday night at 10:00, for more jazz from Jay Shepherd, Dave Stryker, and Sunna Gunnlaugs.

DJ Hairy Larry Presents Bebop Beatniks Playing Sail Boats | Something Blue

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.

DJ Hairy Larry Presents Paul Richardson Playing Kellys Blues | Something Blue
Posted on Monday November 20, 2023

From The Archives Of Something Blue 2023-11-11

Thanks Marty, today we’re going to hear a piano trio playing the blues at KASU Jazz Thursday.

I met Paul Richardson at the piano store hanging out flyers for Blue Fest 91, the first Blues Fest. He said he had a group that would like to play, Jonesboogie Blues, so I booked them on the spot. I wasn’t really expecting him to bring a grand piano but he did and they played a great set. I have recordings, somewhere in the archive, so now I’m going to have to dig them out for a future podcast. Like a lot of jobs, the more work I do the more work I have to do.

Paul continued helping us with Blues Fest through all 25 years. He was also a frequent guest with Hairy Larry and The Flying Hungarians. He even came and played at the church one Wednesday night. So when I started booking KASU Jazz Thursday I got in touch with him right away.

On June 24, 2010, he was our featured act. Then he stayed to play with the Adhoc Combo. Playing with Paul, that night, was Corey Emerson, bass and Carl Abraham, Drums. All three were living in Northeast Arkansas at the time, each with storied music careers in the area.
