John Surman, Drew Gress, John Abercrombie and Jack DeJohnette @ Birdland

Got a lucky invitation to see a show @ Birdland – John Surman – baritone and soprano sax, John Abercrombie on guitar, Drew Gress – bass, Jack DeJohnette on drums. It was an ECM Records CD release Celebration. Was great to see Jack DeJohnette live, finally! And I like Drew Gress a lot. It’s ridiculous how hard to please I’ve become in New York – I guess lately I enjoy all the new and modern stuff most.  But I do love going to Birdland for free. Still, the best part of the evening was that I actually met a role-model for myself😀 Was really inspiring to see someone with same kind of attitude and lifestyle – enjoying life in a cultural and tasteful way – and he’s a pro😀.

Went for drinks in the East Village later on. Found the Charlie Parker Residence.
