Sunday night @ the 55 Bar

W/ Adam Cruz (drums), Joe Sanders (bass) and Ben Monder (guitar). Lot of people, I came for the second set and couldn’t even find a seat at first. Was a great gig 😀 Really enjoyed listening to Ben Monder again…  I guess it was the last New York jazz concert for me this year, though, because I’ll be out of town for a while. Really don’t know when I’ll be back.

Mike Moreno Group @ the Jazz Gallery

So many great choices for shows featuring killing guitar players – there was the Peter Lynch/Ray Appleton’s Wes Montgomery project @ Creole, John Abercrombie @ 86th St Barnes & Noble, Ben Monder trio @ Bar Next Door, Davy Mooney @ Bar Next Door, Mike Moreno Group @ the Jazz Gallery, Jim Hall @ Birdland, Dave Allen trio with Drew Gress, Tom Rainey, Eivind Opsvik @ Nublu… I ended up listening to Ben Monder’s 1st set @ Bar Next Door (had trouble finding a seat though, it was packed – and I was told unless I was Ben Monder’s wife or something I couldn’t be comped in there :D) and Mike Moreno who had a really good band @ the Jazz Gallery – Taylor Eigsti on piano, Matt Clohesy on bass, Adam Cruz on drums, Peter Schlamb on vibraphone. The second set was just amazing!
