Looking forward to our show on Thursday, November 8th 7-11 at the Blue Room. Come check us out! We’ll be playing some new stuff including a new tune from Matt Otto and “Eiderdown” by Steve Swallow. Here is a Bill Evans recording with Tristano disciples Warne Marsh and Lee Konitz that inspired us to play the tune:
Very excited to help kick off the Rhythm & Ribs Festival in style tonight at The Blue Room from 8-10pm. There are great local and national groups all weekend down at 18th & Vine. The show is sponsored by North Coast Brewing…maker of Brother Thelonious and Blue Room Pale Ale. In honor of Brother Thelonious, we’ll be playing Monk’s “Four in One.”
Wonderful post from KCJazzLark about a great singer and friend of the band Megan Birdsall. It’s important to keep this whole music thing in perspective. Once again…we love the KC music community. Please buy all of Megan’s CD’s and go see her live!
Crosscurrent named one of the Top 5 KC jazz Acts by KJHK 90.7. Very happy to be in such good company…we love our fellow KC musicians.
