I have to make this clear from the word go – JAZZ MUSICIANS SHOULDN’T WEAR SHORTS ON STAGE! It’s just wrong…

But these guys made up for by performing a fantastic rendition of The Stylistics’ ‘People Make the World Go Round’. Smooth Jazz saxophonist Richard Elliot and trumpeter Rick Braun took to the stage on the lido deck of the 2010 ‘Smooth Jazz Cruise’ for an impromptu performance and caught the attention of everyone on deck.

Check out the video below; and if you want to hear more, listen to Richard Elliot‘s studio-recorded version of this track from his album ‘Metro Blue’ in the media box to the right.
