Nate Radley 4tet @ the Church of Greenwich Village
Nate Radley (guitar), Loren Stillman (alto), Gary Wang (double bass), Diego Voglino (drums) @ the Neighborhood Church of Greenwich Village, Bleecker St (6th Av). I found Gary Wang on double bass real amazing, the way he seems to tell stories with his playing. Actually heard him about a month or so ago playing in Ben Monder’s trio. And Loren Stillman is a really happening alto player, I guess he’s one of my favorite sax players I’ve heard here so far. I actually first saw him play with Tim Ziesmer @ Spike Hill and then with his own trio @ Royale (Park Slope) a couple of weeks ago. He can take playing harmony into whole new intriguing level. This time I really liked January by Nate Radley and the Flaming Lips cover One More Robot.
