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!

Mike Moreno @ Smalls

Really great jazz @ Smalls yesterday – Mike Moreno on guitar, Peter Schlamb on vibraphone, Jon Cowherd on piano, Doug Weiss on bass, Jochen Rueckert on drums.  Those were some real jazz cats :). Mike Moreno seems to be a really sound-conscious guitar player and on top of that plays very interesting lines as well :D. For me, the greatest revelation was the drummer – I can’t believe I hadn’t seen him around before, he seems to be one of the busiest in the scene – really enjoyed his playing. They did some Mike’s original tunes, I was especially blown away by the second set when they played The Fifth Element followed by a really beautiful nameless ballad. And Wayne Shorter’s Children of the Night sounded great as well.
