McCoy Tyner and Charles McPherson at 80 with the JALC Orchestra.  McCoy was scheduled to play, but did. He is looking frail. He was in the audience. Charles played and swung the entire set dedicated to him.

Last night, at the Majestic Theater, Terence Blanchard featuring the E Collective, with a backdrop of visual collages by artist Andrew F. Scott, and choreography by Rennie Harris, performed by the Rennie Harris Puremovement American Street Dance Theater Company. This was the premier performance, and they are doing it again tomorrow night in Austin.

Last night, at the Kitchen Cafe, the Shelley Carrol Quartet. This place is perhaps the best listening room in town. Very clean and balanced sound. I hadn't heard Shelley in a couple of years. He and his band sounded fabulous. There again tonight.

Awesome front line, Kevin

I saw Phil with George Garzone about 2 years ago and he was great. You know I’m more into “out” music so I’ll relay a comment that Tony Malaby made regarding Bergonzi. He said he knows no one that can play changes as well as Jerry Bergonzi. He was relating it to a set he saw him play when they were both playing at the same Jazz festival a few years back. Enjoy the show!!

I was at Scullers on Friday.

Wayne Escoffery with Rashaan Carter-bass, David Kikoski-piano and Kush Abadey-drums.

The band was in top form, playing was spectacular.   I wish they played longer but it seems just over an hour is the new norm for a live show.

I really wanted to go to this but I couldn't find anyone to go with and I'm not a huge fan of going solo unless it's someone I just have to see.You are right that show length seems to be going down.

Has Ricky Ford moved back to the U.S.? Or is he just visiting?

I think he still lives abroad, but this is the second time I have heard him live in the past 14 months.

Damn - I would've loved to catch that band. I've never seen Ford or Altschul and I haven't seen Harris in decades. Are they coming anywhere near Boston?

I have two Barry Altschul leader dates:

They were in New Bedford Friday night and I think Dartmouth, MA before that.

Zero on-line presence to this "tour". Ford's website looks like it hasn't been updated in many years.

Too bad. They were grooving hard. Very intense playing by Ford. There was a good crown in Old Lyme.
