Bye Bye Blackbird – Michael Tracy with Rich Syracuse

BYE, BYE BLACKBIRD – Ray Henderson with bassist Rich Syracuse.
Recorded at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki, Finland. June 2023.

I met Rich many years ago in La Plata, Argentina, with Waldo Brandwajnman. I always enjoyed Rich’s enthusiasm and musical approach to playing. You can tell he just loves to play and I wanted to share that with him. Interestingly, he and I are both playing on borrowed instruments. Doesn’t matter in the least.
