Here's That Rainy Day
Thomas Mackay Quintet
Swing'n jazz standards with a cool jazz quintet that features Vibraphone and Saxophone ...
This re-release is in memory of my dear friend and saxophonist Bud Berlingeri. Bud recorded this session with my band in 2013 and it's possibly the only recording that he has appeared on. Bud spent many years touring with Louis Prima, Claude Thornhill and many others. The session players on this recording all hail from Southern Oregon, recorded in the old "Blue Note" era style at Hartkopt Studios. Featuring Tom Stamper on drums, John Zalabak on bass, Paul Turnipseed on guitar and myself, Thomas Mackay on vibraphone. Rest in Love Bud Berlingeri.
Recorded at Hartkop Studios in Central Point, Oregon 2013. Originally released on Hammondbeat Records 2013 and now re-released by Thomas Mackay on his own label, Unicorn Productions 808, Oahu HI.
