Daily Distraction: In a Sentimental Mood (with Adam Gaines)

“At various points and for various reasons, I’ve found myself with a limited number of opportunities to play much music with other musicians. It’s during these times that I am very thankful for play-along tracks like those from famous jazz educator Jamey Aebersold. One of my favorite to play is Duke Ellington’s “In a Sentimental Mood,” which seems fitting at the moment. I just heard yesterday that one of my favorite trumpet players, Wallace Roney, was taken from us at age 59 by complications from COVID-19. It makes the small sacrifice of staying home and not playing with other musicians for a time seem insignificant. Stay safe everyone.” – Adam Gaines
