Song for my Father, Ryan Kisor, Peter Bernstein

In 2004, Ryan Kisor released an album called "Donna Lee", backed by an all star band (Greg Hutchinson, Sam Yahel and Peter Bernstein).

On the album they took a surprising turn at "Song for my Father". Instead of playing straight eights, they chose to go for a triplet feel, a 12/4-feel, you might say.

I thought it sounded so fresh, that I made a style for it.

On the album Kisor, Yahel and Bernstein kick up some dust. My own version can't hold a candle to theirs, but I just thought it was such a nice version that I had to record it.
