Sean Lennon and Charlotte Kemp Muhl (aka Goast of a Saber Tooth Tiger) just recorded a Tiny Desk Concert for NPR.  I’m super stoked about their upcoming tour (go here for dates).

Dave Douglas & Brass Ecstasy on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert

21st Jul 09 (Tue) Leave a comment

Dave Douglas & Brass Ecstasy released Spirit Moves earlier this year, and it is fantastic… one of the best releases of the year so far.  It’s out now on Greenleaf Music (Dave’s label).

Well, yesterday (7/20), their recent Tiny Desk Concert (a great feature on NPR) was posted as streaming video and as part of the NPR: Live Concerts from All Songs Considered Podcast.  From the article… Afterward, I heard a colleague who works elsewhere in the building rave, “I don’t know anything about jazz, but that was amazing!” See, the mere mention of jazz may scare off many, but when you see experts performing as ebulliently as these folks did, it’s hard to remain unmoved.
