Chuck Playing Barney

December 17, 2008

Nicolai Foss

That is, Chuck Wayne and the rest of the Shearing Quintet playing Barney Kessel’s “Swedish Pastry” (originally recorded with Charlie Parker) (here). Chuck plays the Epiphone Century (I think) that he favored in the beginning of his career (he later switched to a D’Angelico). And here they are playing “Move” with another great and legato Wayne solo.
