Danny Hull Newsletter: Musically This Week Vol XIII, No 1

Hullo friends.  Hope you see this in time to make your Tuesday plans...

Tuesday, 9/14 at Bobby McGee's 7:00 - 10:00 p.m.
Clay Jenkins, trumpet     Chris Ziemba, piano     Jeff Campbell
, bass     your host, drum set
...because you don't want to miss one of the most unique and individual trumpet players on this round planet.  Why the worn out "unique and individual" qualifiers?  Because when I hear Clay, I can't hear his influences.  We all know musicians who spend their formative years emulating their idols.  And there's value in that.  What's the cliche?  "Good musicians borrow.  Great musicians steal."  But all skills being equal, a great musician is recognized as such by the strength of his or her individuality.  And Clay Jenkins is the real deal - a mature artist with a singular musical voice.  For this date at Bobby McGee's, Clay has invited his friend and colleague on the Eastman faculty, bassist Jeff Campbell, and another Eastman protege in pianist Chris Ziemba.  Not bad company.  And you are invited too.  Hear swinging American music steeped in tradition, and set free by a creative musical spirit.  Still at 
Bobby McGee's, now 
n the Maple Ridge Plaza, Sweet Home & Maple Roads.  Tina, Jyl, Jessica, steady Billy & quiet Mike - good music, good food, good people, chilled spirits, and a great hang.

next Tuesday, 9/21 at Bobby McGee's 7:00 - 10:00 p.m.
Ernie Krivda, saxophone     Bobby Jones, piano     Jim Colemon, bass     your host, drum set

upcoming at Bobby McGee's     7:00 - 10:00
9/28 Joe Rozler & Dave Schiavone
10/12 Greg Millar
10/26 Gary Keller & Andy Weinzler

Back to school...
