Joy Hackett (Spalding)>>>Ben Davis(Brubeck)

Bw one more for the road

This was a reiteration of a previous post that was about Keith Jarrett but digressed to a query about an unknown artist out of San Jose, Joy Dawn Hackett, who is doing a livestream for the San Jose Museum next week, Thursday, January 28. I had decided I liked her just by glancing at her muted posts. Here she does an original “bubble” take on an Esperanza Spalding song. I juxtaposed it to something from my cell phone thread, a conversation with my nephew Ben Davis, himself a Bellarmine grad in terms of his 408 bona fides, talking about Julian Lage guitar and Dayna Stephens arrangments of a Brubeck tribute to Ellington. And then to complete the progression, from me ripping someone to a hybrid content-conversation to a clip from a recent concert I produced, with Sullivan Tuttle and A.J. Lee doing two originals, at Mitchell Park Community Center, by Earthwise Productions. Recent meaning March, 2020, before the Covid shutdown.
