Kurt Rosenwinkel standards trio @ the Vanguard
Well, I heard both 2 sets except for the opening Larry Young tune. With Rodney Green on drums and Eric Revis on bass. They played a Monk tune, Boplicity, Invitation, More Than You Know, When Sunny Gets Blue, Stablemates, Along Came Betty, Dexterity and many more which I can’t recall at the moment. Yeah, as killin as Kurt Rosenwinkel is with standards, his own tunes are just so incredible that I couldn’t wait to hear him play those :D! Not with this gig, though, obviously. Enjoyed it a lot, though. So I had to take a picture with him, hanging out at the Vanguard – it was just too tempting not to… xD!
After that I also happened to check out the jam session @ Smalls – which was really quite good that day.Too many horn players still, even though they were killin.
