The late Victor Feldman [1934 – 1987] was such a powerfully swinging pianist that he could figuratively rock-a-room, something he did quite often in the 1970’s at Donte’s Jazz Club in
with a quartet that featured saxophonist, Tom Scott. North Hollywood, CA
Perhaps Feldman’s propulsive piano playing had something to do with the fact that he began his musical career as a drummer.
Victor and Tom would eventually go on to participate in what is generally referred to as Jazz-Fusion groups: The Generation Band and The LA Express, respectively.
But click on this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KLWBF97wi6k to view a YouTube and hear Victor and Tom at their straight-ahead best, including some of Tom’s finest Jazz saxophone playing on record.
Joining with them on the I Love Lucy Theme are Chuck Domanico on bass and Johnny Guerin on drums.
Don’t let the languid introduction fool you as this thing really kicks into gear at about the minute mark.
