Benny Goodman: Blue Collar Virtuso * Live at The Bop Stop

Last Wednesday's tribute to Benny Goodman at Cleveland's Bop Stop nightclub was a blast. Here are some videos...

First, my chorus on a favorite Benny Goodman number, "A Smooth One"



Next,  the ending theme of an original of mine called "(That's Just) The Way It Goes" (captured and shared by Hot Club enthusiast Bill Laufer).


Enjoy, and Keep Swinging!

Eric Seddon's Hot Club live @ The Bop Stop

Last night we continued our six concert Trad Jazz Invasion of one of the finest jazz rooms in Cleveland--The Bop Stop. A fan caught a few choruses of my tune 'Everything's Jake' on her phone and shared it with us--you can check it out below.

Some Photos from The Cleveland Museum of Art's Jazz Cafe Series



George Foley and I kicked off the Jazz Cafe at the Cleveland Museum of Art yesterday: a musical series to coincide with their exquisite Jazz Age exhibit. I was particularly gratified that they chose Josephine Baker as the symbol of their exhibit. In tribute, George and I lead off with Sidney Bechet's "What a Dream", Bechet having played in her Revue Negre in Paris...

Eric Seddon's Hot Club live @ The Music Box Supper Club TONIGHT

Almost exactly two years ago, The Music Box Supper Club gave us our first chance to play a nightclub in Cleveland. Before then,the gigs had been tough to scratch out; after that they came steadily. Ever since, we've always been happy to return to one of our favorite place to play. Here's a clip (taken by friend of the band, Reid Patterson) of our performance opening for Preservation Hall Jazz Band earlier this summer. Tonight's show starts at 7--we'll play two full sets of music, including several originals that will receive their Cleveland debuts tonight. Hope to see you there!
