John Ellis' Double Wide & Somi @ Madison Square park
I was so looking forward to those, but was actually pretty disappointed, especially with the Double Wide. Didn’t like it so much at all, except for the last tune. Madison Square park concerts have such a great vibe though, I still remember John Scofield from last year as one of the best concerts ever :D. Yeah, I think I have actually liked John Ellis’s groups a lot previously. I wonder if it was just one of those days. John Ellis-sax/bass clarinet, Brian Coogan-piano, Matt Perrine-sousaphone, Jason Marsalis-drums.
Somi and her band somehow just didn’t seem to be for me, and I only heard the first song or two.
