Danny Hull Newsletter: Musically This Week Vol XIII, No 14
Hullo friends. Late Monday night. Wiped out. Can't think. Can't write. I'm even enjoying my second cold of the school year. The children are so giving... So here's a brief synopsis of this week's musical offerings...
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. So if you like straight ahead and swinging, please brave the cold and help us keep our jazz contribution on life support.
Thursday, 12/16 at Cecelia's 6:00 -9:00
Michael T. Jones, piano Greg Piontek, bass yours truly, drum set
And speaking of straight ahead and swinging, Mike Jones eats 50's records for breakfast. I played a gig with him last Friday and he's simply unbelievable - any tune, any key. I still marvel at how lucky the Buffalo jazz community is to have had musicians like Mike & Tim Clarke actually re-locate here. Must be the beef on weck...
Saturday, 12/18 at Bobby McGee's 8:00 - 11:00
Mary Stahl, vocals Jim Calabrese, piano Paul Zapalowski, bass your correspondent, drum set
And on the subject of lucky... Mary Stahl was born and raised here. Guess we should be thanking some ancestral whim... This Saturday opens the one musically legal week to render Christmas music to our Bobby McGee's audience. Join us for some holiday cheer?
