Tony Scherr Trio @ Jalopy
Have been planning to go for months (ever since I met Tony Scherr @ the Village Vanguard, when he was playing – double bass- with Bill Frisell trio in May) So now I finally got to go – it was amazing! Tony Scherr, guitar and vocals, Anton Fier on drums, Rob Jost on bass. That trio is one of the hidden gems in New York music scene, definitely. Something about Tony Scherr’s voice reminded me of Nick Drake, the way it transports you into a whole another intimate universe. Even though his style is otherwise quite different. And what an incredibly unique guitar player (well, he’s originally known as a bass player)! No fancy scales, I bet he never took a guitar lesson in his life – and he doesn’t really need one! It was all pure music. I loved it! One of my favorite concerts I’ve heard here so far 😀
Well and it’s pretty much a Monday night regular @ Jalopy – a really nice venue in Red Hook/Cobble Hill, Brooklyn. I wonder if it is as good every time!
