Crosscurrent on YouTube

David Rizer is keeping the KC jazz flame alive through nightly video documentation of gigs around town.  We were lucky enough to have him come out and shoot last month.  Here’s a clip of Matt Otto’s solo on Lennie’s composition Lennie Bird, based on the changes to How High the Moon.

Dave will be filming at our Jardine’s gig September 24th.
