Exploring New York City and Brooklyn jazz scene

Ben Monder, Chris Lightcap & Diego Voglino @ the 5th Estate

Chris Lightcap, Diego Voglino, Ben Monder @ the 5th Estate. Why are the parrots on the wall?

Formerly known as Royale, 506 5th ave. b/x 12th & 13th Brooklyn is now called the 5th Estate – a lot of things have changed but they are still having Diego Voglino’s Tuesday night jam sessions with some really great New York musicians in the opening and closing sets. This time it was Ben Monder and Chris Lightcap, playing standards like  I’m Old Fashioned, This Is New, Embraceable You, Along Came Betty and World of Pain, the CREAM tune in the first set and Long Ago And Far Away, All or Nothing At All and one that I didn’t recognize for the closing set. I still think Ben Monder is one of the most interesting guitar players to listen to! You never really know what will happen next, it truly demonstrates what a limitless land jazz guitar is. And I thought Chris Lightcap sounded really great.

    You wouldn’t have any of these gigs as bootlegs would you?

    Kind regards,

    • Hey, thanks. About the bootlegs – I don’t have any, really, but there is a guitar player called Sebastian Noelle (from Brooklyn) who always records Ben’s gigs (for his own use) 🙂 I’d like to get some of those as well. You should ask Ben about this, anyway… 😀
