Danny Embrey on the Mike Douglas Show
I've struck YouTube gold! Guitarist Danny Embrey is a fixture on Kansas City's jazz scene. Until I stumbled across this goofy time machine, however, I didn't realize that the outstanding guitarist was once in Sergio Mendes' band. But the unmistakable evidence in all its Day-Glo glory is at the 2:51 mark of this footage. Everything goes well until Douglas takes over. Embrey performs Friday at the Jazz Winterlude festival at Johnson County Community College.
