you have to to hand it to jalc…  the produtions there are fantastic.  this new year’s eve performance by two of my current favorite pianists is like a turbo-charged piano trio, plus the great jimmy heath (recently deceased, r.i.p.) and nicholas payton thrown in just because new year’s eve at dizzy’s.  with two pianos, i’m [Read more…]

this is a fun show!  and bound to pick you up if you’re feeling a bit blue.  this reminded me of the great spike jones & the city slickers, but  in a small way — after all, a piano trio ain’t an orchestra.  on the other hand, i might put on a recording by hildegard [Read more…]
