From The Archive February 21, 2021 – Rob Alley – “A Foggy Day”

Thanks Marty, I just love playing some great jazz on Arkansas Roots.

I met Rob Alley when he was on the music faculty at ASU. He played jazz trumpet and was very helpful to jazz students letting them sit in when he played at The Edge Coffeehouse. I invited him to play at the Craighead Forest Bandshell on June 21, 2009, and he put together a great band with Mike Overall on drums and Dave Eckert on bass. Mike was editor at the Jonesboro Sun and Dave is currently on the faculty at ASU teaching jazz bass and he’s the head librarian at the Public Library where we do our New Jazz In Jonesboro shows.

Ok now, here’s the Rob Alley Trio recorded on June 21, 2009, at the Craighead Forest Bandshell playing “A Foggy Day”.
