Ep 38: Live Music – They Say It’s Spring

by | Sep 5, 2023 | Podcast | 0 comments

“They Say It’s Spring”, is a tune composed by Bob Haymes and Marty Clark, and recorded by the great vocalist/pianist Blossom Dearie. My friend and musical partner Kristen Collins introduced me to this tune, and we are preparing it to play on some upcoming performances. I really like this tune. It’s a traditional standard type of tune, but has a good melody and interesting harmony, and the lyrics are great, too.

This is a sample of me playing a solo piano version at my hotel gig here in Greenville. The sound quality isn’t great, but I was pleased with the interpretation. Kind of old style, but groovy.

Kristen will be performing this and several other great tunes, with my trio, now expanded to a quartet with the addition of Peter Dimery on sax, along with Ron Brendle on bass, and Justin Watt on drums. September 14, 2023. See the link below.

The quartet will be performing my original compostions. It always great performing with the guys! And the museum is a wonderful, intimate space for live music.

Come and see us!

Keith Davis Quartet, with guest vocalist Kristen Collins

Coming up this Fall, KEYS TO JAZZ BOOTCAMP
