Harry Connick, Jr. and Ben Wolfe: Fly Me to the Moon

Here’s a great clip of bassist Ben Wolfe swinging hard with Harry Connick, Jr. on the jazz standard “Fly Me to the Moon” from a 1989 appearance on Night Music. Connick and Wolfe keep things light by drawing out the melody and playing off of each other.

The duo start with just bass and vocals before Connick sits at the piano, but no matter the instrumentation, Wolfe keeps things driving.
