Our next jam is this Sunday, December 3rd. Featured tunes are Song For My Father by Horace Silver, and Someday My Prince Will Come, from the Disney movie, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
Please see my previous article for Song for my Father. In that article I also talk about a newspaper article about the jam written by Cara Lombardo, John’s daughter. I’m happy to report she completed her masters in journalism and is now back in NY writing for the Wall Street Journal. How about that?
Someday my Prince Will Come is a fun tune, partly because it is in 3/4 and partly because the chords are nice to play over. My favorite version is by Lonnie Liston Smith. He opens his solo with fascinating rhythms and then builds and builds his solo!
