Tuesday-night Brooklyn jazz crawl

A weekday night in Brooklyn – went out for some interesting live music🙂.  First, Allison Miller (drums) /Ellery Eskelin (tenor sax) /Brad Jones (bass) trio @ Barbes. It was pretty crowded. I liked the trio a lot too – some very creative music.

And then Le Grand Dakar @ 285 Grand Ave, Clinton Hill, – an African restaurant with great live music bookings –  featuring Todd Sickafoose (double bass, compositions) with Jenny Scheinman on violin and Pete Robbins on sax that night. Was interesting music (with a little weird intonation at times), but for playing and listening didn’t seem to be the best spot ever, I guess – too much of a restaurant vibe, especially when most people show up to have family dinner.

And then Royale on 5h Ave for the Tuesday night jam session, this time with Nir Felder’s band (Allison Miller on drums, Gary Wang on bass and a sax player🙂 ) playing the opening and closing set. They did standards and a really good new original ballad of Nir’s that they were to read on the spot.

Since I don’t want to drink beer anymore it’s a shame most bars here don’t serve tea and coffee.😀 So it’s either an $8-glass of wine or – soda?
