Their story is one which musicals may be made, romantic indeed…the meeting of the bands: Listen HERE to my conversation with Chicago music icons Mark and Anne Burnell on Steve Dale’s Other World on WGN.
What attracted these musicians to one another…it wasn’t only their good looks, it was their good music.
Is it a good thing to work with your spouse? We find that out…..And do they really rehearse together in their shower?
Are they blues? Are they jazz? Are they pop? Are they gospel? The answer is to all the above is yes, particularly jazz. We talk in depth about music. And these guys suggests jazz is at the root of everything.
Of course, this podcast includes their music. . . arguable that is the best part. You’ll hear music arranged by the same arranger who worked with the likes of Julie London and Count Basie.
You can hear these guys all over town, from the Tortoise Club to a church.
