At The Cliff Dwellers: Thaddeus Tukes with Paul Asaro

Editor’s Note: It was snowing outside on February 24, 2023 when Thaddeus Tukes on vibraphone and Paur Asaro on piano began the last of their two sets At The Cliff Dwellers. No one was happy their second set lasted only an hour and a half.  This video captures many of their memorable jazz treatments, including such classics as All that Jazz, Gershwin’s I Got Rhythm, Sonny Rollins’s Doxy, More Better Blues, Someday My Prince Will Come, They Can’t Take that Away from Me, and Softly as in a Morning Sunrise. Given that Tukes is beyond being a master of the vibraphone and Asaro is a genius of the stride piano, it was no surprise that everyone left wishing the evening could have gone on longer.
