the Ice Siren @ the Jazz Gallery

Went to the Jazz Gallery again on Saturday to hear John Ellis’s Large Ensemble project, a “jazz opera”, the Ice Siren – it featured an 11-piece ensemble (strings, vibes, guitar, percussion, tuba, saxophones/woodwinds, 2 vocals).  I couldn’t really follow the music and the story very well this time, probably because I’d been having too much Sex on the beach at a bar before (another story), but I did notice Gretchen Parlato‘s magically impressive voice.  At the concert I also noticed that Mike Moreno is playing a guitar looking very much like mine. Went to check it out after the concert – the guitar was actually a Gibson, but we did go out for drinks later on.
