“Swinging The Songbook” 2011 Los Angeles Show Revisited
It was 2011. Through a series of events, I found myself putting plans into place to organize a concert date in a venue “far far away”, and minus throwing a dart at a map of Los Angeles… the destination wound up being The Mint. I knew NOTHING about it. Never been there. In it’s day this small nightclub hosted a roster of familiar faces, from Rat Pack days of yore.
Since my dear friend Pat Longo made his home nearby in Van Nuys and had a corral of fine players to utilize from his big band… and one afternoon of rehearsal the day before, the result was “Swinging The Songbook” which was incredibly filmed by my now good friend Eddie Jung (who later was responsible for my “Girl Talk” video) and his then partner Adi Nyair.
