Gerri's Blues (a Pat Martino composition also known as Cisco) is a definite highlight of the Together album and one that Emily had been playing for years in various settings long before her duo with Larry. Emily really made that tune her own by adding her unique rhythmic fingerprint with a deep, in the pocket groove. It's really exciting to hear Peter and Larry's interplay in their tribute performance and there are some very special moments where Peter Moc really does capture the spirit of Emily's playing so well. Their performance of How Insensitive, the Antonio Carlos Jobim standard that Emily loved so dearly, is intense, impassioned and graceful. We are delighted that the duo have decided to continue to perform a tribute gig for Emily each year. Be sure to catch Larry's short speech about Emily in the final video.
Our heartfelt thanks to Peter and Larry for sharing these performances. Visit Larry here: larrycoryell.net and look out for Peter Moc's upcoming duo tour in Ireland in March 2016 with one of the finest jazz guitarists on the scene today, New York's Sheryl Bailey.
