Duane Eubanks Quintet @ Cornelia Street Café

Went to hear Duane Eubanks Quintet with Duane Eubanks on trumpet, Anthony Wonsey on piano (subbing for Orrin Evans I think), Dezron Douglas on bass, Abraham Burton on tenor sax and Eric McPherson on drums.

I liked the tunes they played (quite old school post bop, reminding a bit of Kenny Dorham) and the bass and drums were just mind blowing! It was the first time for me to hear Dezron Douglas: I liked his playing a lot, I think he really played as if he loves the whole concept of time and being in it…

Duane Eubanks had his son (or some kid) running around  the stage the whole time which was kind of cute in the beginning (and it’s great to have kids experiencing music like this, for sure) but after  a while I found it a little bit distracting, still…

Was worth going, anyhow. And Cornelia Street has nice wines 😀
