Tim Collins Group @ Solo Kitchen Bar

With Danny Grissett on piano, Johannes Weidenmueller on bass, Eric Doob on drums and Tim Collins on vibes. Heard the second set – was great! I love Tim Collins’s approach – seems easygoing and simple, but is also really well balanced and dynamic. Sometimes have the energy of a rock band, with vibes 😉 ! Really good compositions as well. I heard Tim’s New Tune again 🙂 My favorite one… Yeah, that band was amazing! Who is that drummer, sounded really good!

Haven’t been to Solo Kitchen Bar in a while. They have great news – beer on tap and brick oven pizza coming soon… Wow 😀 And I just discovered that the bus from my neighborhood, B68 comes and goes there in every 7-8 minutes, all night. Is that possible? Anyway, B68 line is special – they say that this is the perfect vehicle for observing the multicultural thoroughfare of Brooklyn. The line starts right where I live, Bartel Pritchard Square and goes all the way to Coney Island. Going to try taking the full ride one day 😀

Smalls was packed for Tim Collins Group last night – that really was an amazing concert! I’d vote Tim Collins the cutest jazz musician in New York (something about vibraphone playing)  and his composition, inventively called Tim’s New Tune the most fun and happening tune I’ve heard here so far 😀 ! Tim Collins on vibraphone, Danny Grissett on piano, Matt Clohesy on bass, Tommy Crane on drums – really versatile and tasteful band, I loved it!
