Yes, we caught that moment on video!
Finally, we get to showcase the archival footage of the unmixed final take of the actual recording of Jingle Bells.from the Skafish album Tidings Comfort & Joy – A Jazz Piano Trio Christmas. This moment was captured live on November 27, 2005 at CRC Studios in Chicago.
The camcorder footage of the recording shows Skafish playing a handcrafted Fazioli piano that was used for the session. Joining Skafish in the studio were bassist Lawrence Kohut and Tom Hipskind on drums.
We have added the video of the Skafish NPR Iinterview with Midwest Beat’s Tom Lounges on Lakeshore Public Radio to the La Befana Records You Tube channel.
