Tom Rubenoff Music is a network of musical friends. It is my extreme good fortune to know so many people who are both very talented and genuinely nice folks – a combination of attributes that tends to be a rare and beautiful thing. My friends have enhanced my musical and personal life and I am very grateful. It is from this pool of rare, fine individuals that I draw talent to play out at private parties and public places. Everybody has fun.
This weekend I got together with friends and made some video to promote our swing music. It was so much fun making music together. We did some of that four-beat swing groove you hear in early Count Basie, so dance-able, and also a couple of jazz standards and one New Orleans style piece. I know we’re all looking forward to seeing the video and hearing ourselves – a chance to relive a good time and to learn a little, too. You’ll be able to see the fruits of our labor here soon.
I am very interested in taking this particular group out to play. I’ll let you know when and where.
