When the Squirrel Nut Zippers recorded Pallin With Al most folks who were listening to the Zippers had little idea who Al was. I recently corresponded with former SNZ guitarist Tom Mathus who had a great story about Al Casey who just passed away in September. Mathus and band mate Tom Mosher went to visit Casey in the hospital up in New York just before he passed away. Although Casey was virtually on his deathbed… he looked up at the two and in a moment of clarity asked …. Hey you cats got any Vodka? Here’s Mathus and Mosher from a new solo release called Maxwell / Mosher on Samsara Records.

Pianist Lou Levy was born on this day in 1928. Levy worked with a countless number of top jazz artists, like Georgie Auld, Sarah Vaughan, Woody Herman, Tommy Dorsey, Shorty Rogers, Stan Getz and Terry Gibbs. He also gained a strong reputation as a fine accompanist to singers, working with Peggy Lee, Ella Fitzgerald, June Christy, Anita O Day, and others. He passed away in late January 2001. Here’s three sides with Lou Levy on piano beginning with this from the Georgie Auld Septet circa 1959
