Gregory Page's New/Vintage All-Star Video
Gregory Page filmed a video for the song "That's You" (from the album My True Love) at the Ideal Hotel downtown on Sunday night, June 12.
With a 1930s motif, his backing group for this clip consisted of bass, piano, guitar, drums and three horns, miming to the album track. The video, set to be released in the next month, also features an appearance from burlesque dancer Lady Borgia.
Both pianist Sky Ladd and drummer Josh Hermsmeier from the original recording took part, with the rest of the video "roles" being played by friends, including upright bassist Doug Walker, clarinetist Chris Klich, and Shambles guitarist Bart Mendoza, as well as a pair of well known local non-musicians; Ideal Hotel director of facilities Aaron Weise and local music promoter "Java" Joe Flammini, both miming on saxophone.
The video will be tinted and colorized to resemble a vintage film clip, in keeping with the theme and cover of My True Love, which is also artificially "aged" to look like a vintage 1930s recording.
If you've seen Page performing live lately, you've likely noticed that even his wardrobe evokes the early 20th century. What we'd love to know is how he manages to get (and keep) a layer of actual DUST on his hats and suit jackets...
(Thanks to Bart Mendoza for the tip!)
