Lars Dietrich 4 @ Rose

Lars Dietrich -sax & compositions, John Escreet – piano, Zack Lober – bass, Jordan Perlson – drums. Featuring Maria Neckham on vocals. I really liked the music and arrangements.  Almost bought a CD, but I didn’t have $15 that time. I think it would be worth it though. Anyway, what a funky piano they have at Rose, never seen anyone use it yet. 😀

Then the guitar trio of Andy Arnold, Moto Fukushima on bass and Jared Schonig on drums, heard them @ the Shrine quite recently. I like how they sound, it’s fusion with a happy funky vibe  🙂 But I was tired somehow. Didn’t stick around for the last band, the Funky Miracle, even though it featured guitar player Chris Conly, the famous curator of Sunday nights @ Rose and Brad Whiteley on keys – met both of them ages ago… 😀

Bad news is that I broke my camera. Taking pictures with Nokia 7373 again.. Really hope that not for long.

Andy Arnold trio @ the Shrine

Andy Arnold trio @ the ShrineGreat music and a great audience @ the Shrine in Harlem (Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Blvd. @ 133-134 st) – Andy Arnold (guitar and compositions), Moto Fukushima (electric bass), Jared Schonig (drums). I would say at least two of the three of them sounded as if they were in love. Lots of good energy and hip playing 😀 And I found a $4 margarita. Was quite strong but way too sweet.
