Walkin’ The Blues

May 19, 2013

MCurl&Friend2Mackenzie Curl has been playing piano and assorted keyboards for 56 years and you can hear Memphis in every note, especially his left hand. We stopped by The Corner Bar for a drink last night, and I complimented him on his playing, and then asked for a song, “All The Way,” the old Sinatra chestnut. He nodded pensively and responded with “All Blues,” copping that distinctive bass line with ease. We sat and talked about music, and then he asked me to play something. I considered my rather limited repertoire and politely declined. Listen and learn.
