With Chris Tordini (bass), Frank LoCrasto (piano), Ari Hoenig (drums). I heard the second set. Ari sounded great with the band! I enjoyed it a lot. I was actually coming from another open bar on 6th Avenue – it was crazy – I never realised what a lot of free vodka and a great DJ can do to a person. Looking back at it I think I had one too many there. But yeah, was really lucky to get a ride back to Brooklyn after Jazz Gallery, because the F – the fabulous– train is doing the shuttle bus thing this weekend.
Went to hear the late set of their first night in the Vanguard. Really interesting music there. They played Speak No Evil, Ask Me Now among others. Nir Felder is just incredible. I wonder what it feels like, to be 25 and play the Vanguard and be so killin’. John Davis on drums sounded great, playing together with bassist Matt Brewer. Sara Serpa’s pure voice was real refreshing in the band.
