[Note: I scheduled this before the school shooting on Friday. I don’t think I’ll have anything to say about that in a blog post other than to remind us to pray.]
Merry gentlemen indeed.
These guys are good. I tried to post this one last year, but YouTube pulled it down (oh, what is it with the copyright police, anyway?). It’s back again, so listen while you can.
God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen is one of my wife Jeri’s favorite Christmas songs, I think because it’s so well-suited to jazz. Here we have David (Dawg) Grisman on mandolin, and the late Jerry Garcia before he was… uh… dead, on acoustic guitar—both doing what they love.
Music is for celebrating.
