repost- Badass Barry Kiener Bootleg

Barry Kiener -my close friend and mentor-late and great- was on Buddy Rich’s Band when he passed on at the Kapell-like age of 30. Yeah, heroin takes as many as she wishes. This rec is just like any other night at his Stouffer’s Hotel gig back in '84 way before many of you even arrived onto this planet. with Barney Mallon on Bass and Steve Curry on drums. The set includes tunes such as Have you met Miss Jones, Stairway to the Stars, Invitation, Rhythm, etc. He swung his ass off and had chops and fluidity to burn… dig, Sousa

Respect. Quite a talented dude.
