Happy Blues Orchestra - May 1st, 2015
Notes: The sheet music for "Knute's Tune" was unearthed from the archives at Urbana Free Library in 2015,  and this version - slightly looser than the one included on O Utopia - was recorded originally by Happy Blues Orchestra as a gift for Knut Bauer, for whom the song was named. Guido Sinclair was his sax mentor in the 80's and they worked together especially on the Variety in Motion program that was taped by him at Nature's Table where Guido often performed. This version, heightened by the inclusion of shimmering strings, was arranged by Eureka Brown with a unique intro for solo piano. Cardboard cases were drafted by hand for a super-limited CD-R edition of around twenty copies.
