Enjoy watching a series of Living Room sessions in the home of Leo Pearlstein -Dave Bluefield’s dad – a former drummer from the Big Band Era who is well into his 90’s. Performing basic jazz standards with outstanding LA musicians for family and friends – video taped by Dave’s brother Howard Pearlstein (the former trumpeter in their Bar-Mitvah Circuit band -“Those Musical Gems -The Pearlsteins)”


Dave Bluefield on keys, Steve Cole on clarinet and vocals, Bill Edwards on Trumpet and vocals, Vaylor Hildebrand on bass and the occassional guitarist Marc Mann, Ricky Zunigar (former guitarist for Stevie Wonder).


This first video in the series features Sweet Baby J’ai provided to us by Dave’s cousin Dorie Leo (his biggest fan during his rock and roll years) and as a marvelous piece of synchronicity Dave had just moved back to LA and went to see Sweet Baby performing at a Hotel near LAX and her guitarist was none other than Ricky Zunigar -who was a guitarist for Dave’s WB Band Kindred in the early 70’s – so adding these two bonafide jazz all-stars really enhanced my parents 68th wedding anniversary.
