Tagasi New Yorgis

with 2 comments

Taas New York ja suvi. Seekord elan Manhattanil, Upper West Side’il. Sattus olema lihtsalt uskumatult hea õnn elukoha leidmisega… Central Park on väga lähedal nüüd, juba käisin üks hommik seal jooksmas, ehkki kuumus on praegu päris hull – õhus justkui poleks üldse hapnikku, mida hingata. Praegu on linnas suviste allahindluste aeg, tavalised on 50-70% allahindlused, sageli kehtivad terves poes. Niisiis, praegu on parim aeg shoppamiseks. Ehkki New Yorgis leiab igasugu diile igal ajal, muidugi.

Aga üldiselt, päris tore on tagasi olla. Miski pole eriti muutunud, kõik on endine, ehk siis lahe värk 😀

Mara Rosenbloom Quartet @ Tutuma Social Club

Mara Rosenbloom Quartet

Heard Mara Rosenbloom, an NYU graduate, pianist, arranger and composer, and her quartet again. I was a bit late for the show, since it was such an early one (7PM), so i missed about half of it… It was very nice, though, the house was pretty packed anyway. I heard the band last autumn in Korzo restaurant (with their tuesday music series curated by James Carney), Brooklyn. I really like the the overall kind of personal sound of the band and how they are so passionate about the music, this is totally what the New York music scene is about for me – this is what actually makes it worthwhile to go see all those shows.

And a great thing about Tutuma – they had some surprisingly good Margaritas for $5 (even though thse weren´t on the menu, you just had to know to ask for those…)

Myron Walden In This World

Really nice free outdoor concert @ St. Peter’s Church, Citigroup Center Plaza @ Lexington ave @ 53rd St. I liked it a lot, was such a well balanced and musical band!  So great to enjoy events like these on a New York summer day… Myron Walden on saxophones, Mike Moreno on guitar, David Bryant on piano, Yasushi Nakamura on bass, Colin Stranahan on drums.
