Saschal Vasandani’s Who shot the messenger @ the Jazz Gallery

Sachal Vasandani's project @ the Jazz Gallery

I don’t know how I even got there, really. Was supposed to meet a friend. And I did and it was cool. But I just didn’t like the music. No judgments, just wasn’t for me at all at that moment. Justin Brown on drums was really cool. Ben Williams on bass, the winner of this year’s Monk Competition didn’t impress me as much as I would have expected. Sachal himself wasn’t really singing so much, mostly just rocking along on the side (actually, the atmosphere of the concert was great, if I didn’t hear it it would have seemed like an awesome show). The girls were somewhat off key, too much for that kind of project, with written parts. The compositions and the concept seemed too simplistic for my image of the Jazz Gallery. Really don’t want to be mean here, but I don’t think I’m going to go hear any more jazz singers. Unless they’re Gretchen Parlato or something.

Anyway. The show was great, but I’m just a terrible snob. And, after all, it’s the Jazz Gallery. Must have high expectations for their stuff.
