John Ellis Group @ Solo Kitchen Bar

Seems like Solo Kitchen Bar is a great place to hear jazz on Sundays – this time it was John Ellis Group playing, really amazing band, sounded great. Finally got to hear Tim Collins on vibraphone, loved it, especially his phrasing. . One of the highlights of the night was certainly when they played Do You Know What It Means To Miss New Orleans. I got to thinking that laid back and bluesy vibes playing must be one of the sexiest things ever 🙂 But the band was still missing Grant Green for that tune :D. Yeah, and besides being an amazing tenor player, John Ellis is a really brilliant composer as well, heard a lot of great original tunes that night.
