Hullo friends. Life! I'm being told that an offer has been tendered. We now await the landlord's decision. Our optimism remains cautious, obviously. New ownership doesn't guarantee the music community that we still have a venue. But I'm also told that there's hope for our continuing jazz experiment. So we head into our holiday Tuesday with yet another new quintet offering...
at Bobby McGee's 7:00 - 10:00
Tim Clarke, trumpet Kenny Kuriscak, saxophones Pat Georger, piano Jim Colemon, bass your host, drum set
Tim has lifted some classic Horace Silver charts for he & Kenny to explore - material from Horace-Scope and the like. Horace Silver is one of the idiom's most prolific composers. From simplicity (Song For My Father) to sophisticated (Peace), Horace owns the knack for creating the most lyrical of melodies. Harmonize the melodies and support them harmonically, and you have a canon of jazz literature. Tim is crafting a book of like material, and we're here to share his inspiration this week. This will be a great night, both musically and socially. We're confident of a good house, being holiday week and all. But if I'm the next owner, I'll be there for certain. If you'd like to both hear some Blue Note classics and help us convince the new ownership, please join us for some holiday cheer.
