Hello everyone. Another special night...
Tuesday, 10/16 at the Iris Restaurant 7:30 - 10:30
Miles Tucker, tenor saxophone Wayne Tucker, trumpet George Caldwell, piano Sabu Adeyola, bass your host, drum set
Last week Craig Kastelnik & Patty Flaherty made the trip from Bethlehem, PA to give an inspiring performance at our weekly jazz experiment. This Tuesday, the talent arrives via Syracuse, Brooklyn, & Clarksdale, Mississippi. Only Sabu & I are Buffalo born. OK, George Caldwell lives among us now, when he’s not on the road anyway. But the Brothers Tucker have to arrange this hook-up, what with Wayne traveling from New York & Miles from Syracuse. And still, no cover charge. This will be an evening of contemporary music, steeped in the influences of these four remarkable musicians. Standards will give way to a more modern concept, but a concept not bereft of melody and feel. Miles & Wayne are twenty-somethings. The material they bring in is influenced by the music that is inspiring them now. And that is singular and refreshing place. We hope you can join us. Vinnie Lesh at the Iris has embraced our idea of contemporary music of the jazz and creative variety, even offering the club to the Buffalo Brass for our biweekly rehearsals. When you’re with us, the art form thrives. Thank you. The Iris Restaurant - in the plaza at the intersection of Maple & Sweet Home Roads in Amherst. 831-3271. Good music, good food, good people, world-class artists, chilled spirits, and a great hang.
Wednesday, 10/17 at the Iris Restaurant 7:30 - 9:30
Buffalo Brass open rehearsal
We played a 100 year anniversary celebration for the Park School on 10/6 - mostly standards and straight ahead. With that prep behind us, it's time to stretch out. Feel free to enjoy the workout from the comfort of your table as Phil tests his musicians with some of his rather challenging arrangements.

Who are we? We find that we live on an insignificant planet of a humdrum star lost in a galaxy tucked away in some forgotten corner of a universe in which there are far more galaxies than people.
