Live jazz in NYC, December 15-16

14 posts in this topic

My brother and his girlfriend are visiting me on these days and I will take them down to see some live jazz in NYC. My options are below -- are there any interesting venues or events that I'm missing? We'll probably go see Fathead at Smoke, or maybe the Lovano-Muhammad duets at Sweet Rhythm. I would love to go see Cecil Taylor but maybe that's not the best choice for visitors. :)

Iridium

CECIL TAYLOR ORCHESTRA HUMANE (Ubunto)BIG BAND!

Marshall Allen, Taylor Ho Bynum, Stephen Haynes, Amir El Saffar, Jeff Hoyer, Steve Swell, Bill Lowe, Bobby Zankel, Sabir Mateen, Elliot Levin, Will Connell, J.D. Parran, Dominic Duval, Jackson Krall

Village Vanguard

Blue Note

Smoke

It doesn't look like Tonic or The Knitting Factory have anything interesting on those days.

There are a few places in Brooklyn you could check out:

Zebulon (Williamsburg) and Barbes (Park Slope).

Another place that looks kind of interesting is the Zinc Bar in the Village.

Zinc Bar

If you want to really scare them take them to the HAINO KEIJI Festival at The Stone.

Does anybody have any suggestions for gigs that whole week (11th-18th)? I've had a look at the very helpful www.hothousejazz.com page, but having never been to NY, and the US only once, I feel a little out of my depth. I shall DEFINITELY be catching the CT big band - but anything else? I'm frustrated to see that monthly, there have been some fantastic-looking AACM NY gigs (Joseph Jarman, Roscoe Mitchell, Muhal, Amina Claudine Myers) gigs on, but nothing apparently in December...I love this stuff though - anybody know of any AACM(-type) stuff on that week?

Many thanks in advance!

Yes, nobody mentioned the 2-day Curtis Fuller Quintet B'day 'bash' over at The Kitano. I'm going to hit that as well as one of the Roy Hargrove/Cedar Walton Trio shows at the Village Vanguard. Should be an excellent weekend! No driving.....no wasting away at the $#@! toll booths in Balt and beyond......how I do love ye olde Amtrak 'Acela'!!

Heck no! That's the whole point.....not sitting in traffic for 6 hrs. When you've got someone watching the kids for the weekend, you make the most of the time you've got. You've got plenty of time on your hands...I'll leave you to hang with the college kids on the bus. :P;)

6 hours? NEVER!!!! The drivers don't know the meaning of stop -- unless it is for a quick pick me up on the New Jersey Turnpike.........

Well, okay....if they can get me to Penn Station in 2:45 I'll ride with you and we'll slip a cassette of Zappa's 'Joe's Garage' into the bus player and listen to Mary from Canoga Park on the ride up.

(Realizing that she no longer recognizes him...or even appreciates the patient religious training he had given her in the past, buddy jones, like a true wet t-shirt emcee type person, proceeds to

Various stupid things to waste time, making the contest itself take longer, thereby giving the mongoloids squatting on the dance floor an opportunity to buy more exciting beverages...liquid prod

That will expand their consciousnesses to the point whereby they might more fully enjoy the ambiance of miami by night...)

Mary:

Hi!

Buddy jones:

Where ya from?

Mary:

Ah, the bus...

Buddy jones:

Which one?

Mary:

You know...the last tour... you know...leather

Buddy jones:

Oh...you were the girl stuck to seat 38 phydeaux iii........
