This rendition of “The Intimacy of the Blues” is probably my favorite. Performed by Tommy Flanagan (piano), Keter Betts (bass), and Bobby Durham (drums), this version is spare, low-key, and as befits the song’s title, intimate. I like the way it flows and the gentle way it swings. This is one piece I never tire of listening to.
