The Open Salon Rock Group is back from its sabbatical and today we are presenting our first song since 2012 when we had a lot of fun with the presidential campaign playing songs that were designed to poke a lot of fun at the Republican candidates.
Today's song, Quiet Afternoon, goes back to June, 1976 when Stanley Clarke recorded the very successful jazz fusion album School Days:

Here's our version that's a bit different than the original, for example, more grand piano and less electric bass:

My photo of Stanley from the spring of 2007 when my brother and I went to the Blue Note in the Village to see him perform. We were the first ones in the door and I sat just three feet away from him...what a great concert!
I have a post about the concert that was published in 2008 here. It was one of my first EPs except Kerry forgot to put the EP logo on the post, but he did put the story on the cover.
