Vic Juris trio with Tim Hagans @ 55 Bar

It was great to hear some good jazz on January first: Vic Juris (guitar), Jay Anderson (bass), Adam Nussbaum (drums) and Tim Hagans (trumpet) @ 55 Bar (the early set). Very nice crowd and atmosphere 🙂

They played a beautiful version of Ornette Coleman’s Lonely Woman.

New Year’s Eve @ Fat Cat: Avi Rothbard Trio

leave a comment »

Avi Rothbard, Pete Zimmer, Jared Gold @ Fat Cat

While most venues seemed to advertise and sell their New Year’s Eve packages for a lot of money and required reservations and/or standing in lines, Fat Cat might actually seemed to be way more accessible than their regular Saturday night. And the same $3 admission as always. And no fuss. Very refreshing.

And actually great music as well: Avi Rothbard (guitar), Jared Gold (organ B3) and Pete Zimmer (drums). I thought they sounded great!

They played, among other things, the Jitterbug WaltzYou Go To My Head, I Don’t Stand A Ghost Of a Chance With You, Midnight Blue, Sunny, Road Song, Just Friends, Feel Like Makin’ Love and some originals.

As they took quite a few requests, I tried to make one for Wives and Lovers, but they said they had played it in the first set (which I missed) 🙂

I was happy to start my year with them!
