Interesting Shows

So I haven’t been talking about any cool music that I’ve seen over the past little while. I will try my best to remember what has happened in the past month. In September I went to the Vanguard to see the Paul Motian trio with Bill Frisell and Joe Lovano (killin’!). I am always amazed at how fresh everything sounds when those three musicians play together. The music is playful, spontaneous and beautiful. I was excited to see their last show of the night and week. I also went to The Stone to see a solo bass show by Mark Dresser (that was amazing as always). Mark Dresser was one of the first bass players I checked out when I moved to New York. Mark’s use of texture on the bass is mind boggling. I feel like I’m listening to a string quartet when he plays.

A fun show that I performed at this past month was Vinnie Sperrazza’s tribute show to Tony Williams. Tony Williams wrote some far out music with vocals and it was a challenge and adventure to perform it. Vin did a great job putting it together and I was happy to be a part of it.

Well that’s it for now.

This Thursday night I will be going to the Jazz Gallery to see Darcy Argue’s Secret Society so that should be fun. Maybe I’ll see some of you there.
