In the interview I did with Jesse van Ruller a few years ago - one of my biggest Blog hits ever - I stated that Jesse's appearances in a "straight ahead" jazz context are pretty rare these days. I added a compilation of a few standards from a concert he did in 2010 in Zandvoort in the "Jazz in Zandvoort" concert series. This morning an internet friend hipped me to the complete concert being on Youtube. As I am writing this I am viewing it and it showcases Jesse's marvellous playing on a complete set of standard among which "You're my Everything" "Prelude to a Kiss", "All or Nothing at All", "Stella by Starlight" and "Sandu". His guitar (the ES 150 he has been playing for quite some years now) is well recorded - what a great sound - and the whole thing was professionally filmed. Thanks PM Brown for hipping me to this. Enjoy the concert!
