Artist: Ryan Driver & Jim Sexton
Song: For Heaven's Sake [composers: Elise Bretton/Sherman Edwards/Donald Meyer]
Recorded at The Tranzac (Southern Cross Lounge), December 23, 2016.Ryan Driver & Jim Sexton - For Heaven's Sake
A duo set of standards from Driver on piano and Sexton on double bass worked at the same pace Driver usually tackles standards with larger groups — that's to say at a relaxed drift with plenty of space for the song to unfold itself. This one's probably best known from Billie Holiday's recording.
[The Ryan Driver Sextet's monthly night at The Tranzac falls next on Friday, January 27th; Jim Sexton will be back at Southern Cross on January 28th as part of Chris Cawthray's Light Industry project, also featuring Glen Hall.]
