"Blues in the Key of Page" by Page
An audio recording of "Blues in the Key of Page," composed and performed by Nathen Page (1937-2003) live on-air on WUCF-FM on June 23, 2000. Page was an American guitarist from West Virginia who moved to Central Florida in 1979, where he remained active until his death in 2003. Page was known for his unorthodox way of playing, including using a thumb pick on his forefinger. He performed with numerous jazz musicians, including Sonny Rollins (b. 1930), Roberta Flack (b. 1937), Sam Rivers (1923-2011), Herbie Mann (1930-2003), and Jackie McLean (1931-2006). Page released this on-air recording as a 2000 album, entitled Thinking of You. The performance included his regular quartet, with Kevin Bales on piano, Leon Anderson on drums, and Jeff Handley on bass.
