Enjoy watching a series of Living Room sessions in the home of Leo Pearlstein -Dave Bluefield’s dad – a former drummer from the Big Band Era who is well into his 90’s. Performing basic jazz standards with outstanding LA musicians for family and friends –
video taped by Dave’s brother Howard Pearlstein (the former trumpeter in their Bar-Mitvah Circuit band -“Those Musical Gems -The Pearlsteins)”
Dave Bluefield on keys, Steve Cole on clarinet and vocals, Bill Edwards on Trumpet and vocals, Vaylor Hildebrand on bass and the occassional guitarist Marc Mann, Ricky Zunigar (former guitarist for Stevie Wonder).
In this amazing twist of fate: Dave and wife Karen were visitng two cousins in Israel (izzy Goedel and Dahlia Kovalsky) moslty in Tel Aviv -and at dinner the night before they were going to Jerusalem, cousin Izzy mentioned to Dave that he had another cousin living in Jerusalem that he should look up. He was a world-class horn player and sure enough these two cousins with the same great -grandfather Lipa Perlstein had an amazing “jam’ session. Shmulik Kovalsky is an amazing talent who has mastered the “wind-controller” (a midi-controller that plays any sound from a module with the wind of a reed instrument). Their mutual great-grandfather had a band back in 1923 in Poland – that played Movie houses before talkies -so witness and enjoy The Pearlstein Family Orchestra version 2.0.
And all of this is possible because for once Dave had his fancy digital camera properly charged and lovely wife Karen willing to film the proceedings. Thanks Karen, great job.
