Recently I was asked to play on another “virtual video” with the Café Borrone All-Stars.  It was an enjoyable experience, especially because the band chose to play one of my favorite songs (“I Would Do Anything For You”) which was written by one of my favorite composers (Alex Hill).  Here it is — enjoy!

Alex Hill (the cat) approves of this performance.

The Swing Central “Windy City Swing” and Kris Tokarski “Ragtime New Orleans Style vol. 2” CDs are still available as digital albums and individual tracks on BANDCAMP: https://halsmith.bandcamp.com/

While you are on that site, be sure to check out On The Levee’s CD too.  Between the stock at Bandcamp, the Louisiana Music Factory and my house, there are very few copies left.  https://ontheleveejazz.bandcamp.com/album/swinging-new-orleans-jazz-for-dancing-or-just-listening

I am finishing up two more articles for the Syncopated Times, and planning more virtual videos.
