Joe Albano's Meanderthals @ the Stone

Joe Albano's Meanderthals @ the Stone

Joe Albano (woodwinds, compositions), Steve Ruel (saxophones), Aki Ishiguro (guitar), Nick Jozwiak (bass), Dave Cole (drums). Sounded loud, electric and adventurous, quite complicated modern stuff 😀 I guess one needs to have spent some time in New York to really enjoy it – I did, actually. A couple of months ago, maybe I wouldn’t have, though. Was very interesting. But, oh my God, THE HEAT… Now I want to go back to the Stone (lots of reasons for it this month – Tyshawn Sorey is curating it in August), but I’m really scared of the heat. Seems like they turn on their AC very reluctantly – but I suspect they actually do have one… Anyway, the heat was unreal.

Douglas Bradford Group @ Tea Lounge

The hardest days to find concerts to go to for free are Saturdays. But seems like Tea Lounge in Park Slope was a great choice that night. Liked the band a lot – John Beaty – alto, Daniel Foose- bass, James Windsor-Wells- drums, Douglas Bradford- guitar, special guest – Joe Albano on soprano sax. Real nice compositions 🙂
