Jazz Brothers: Thurl Bailey B-Sides and Rarities

October 9th, 2012 | by Spencer Hall

While the Jazz were starting the 2012-13 preseason with an inauspicious loss at Golden State with no television coverage on Monday night, the internet was doing what it does so well– serving up the following incredible tracks featuring Utah Jazz players singing. Enjoy “Keep Fightin” and “Keep it Sexy” by The Jazz Brothers.

From the New York Times in 1987:

Thurl Bailey, Del Curry, Rickey Green, Darrell Griffith, Karl Malone and Carey Scurry of the Utah Jazz, with time to spare during a recent road trip, tried their hand at making a recording of the Temptations’ song ”My Girl,” in a shopping mall in Phoenix. After the recording was well received by listeners of several Salt Lake City radio stations, they formed a group known as the Jazz Brothers.

We need to get our hands on that recording of My Girl in a shopping mall. Internet, don’t let us down.

Thanks to @typhill for the discovery. I realize it’s been featured here and there in the past, but it deserves a little more shine.
