Brilliant. And, I mean, WHAT a sound on alto.:) (The guy at the back is Jeff Beck)

well, well, I hate to disagree. Sorry Folks!:(

I love Peter King and this video seems to belong to a series of sessions where Jeff Beck, Lulu, Van Morrison, Tom Jones, and many more people took part (great stuff and great fun to se musicians having fun together). Peter King is Gigantic in (almost) all he does in this video.

Lush life is one of my favorite ballads ever.

This version, I am afraid to say, is not at all considering the great lyric atmospherics of this piece at all. I don't like the fact the Peter King uses it to show great skills and virtuoso artistry but totally against not only the tradition of playing this piece......Archie Shepp, Stan Getz, John Coltrane (nothing wrong with being against traditions!) but also against the grain of its spirit.

;) point taken but still disagree.....

how do you put together the " feel" in King's version with the immortal text......." And there I'll be while I rot with the rest of those whose lives are lonely toooooooooooo ........"
