Bill Stewart at Bar Bayeux

If you missed Bill Stewart at the Village Vanguard last weekend with Renee Rosnes, it was quite a set of shows. Renee’s group sounded great and Bill was in fine form.

Here’s another chance to check out Bill Stewart, thanks to Bar Bayeux. They have been killing it lately, doing live streams every Wednesday evening and leaving them online for about 6 days after.

Last night’s show featured:

  • Jerome Sabbagh: tenor saxophone
  • Mark Turner: tenor saxophone
  • Joe Martin: bass
  • Bill Stewart: drums

The setlist was wonderful and full of well-known standards. Watch this one while it’s still available!

Next week on 11/25 is the Adam Birnbaum Trio featuring David Wong and Rodney Green.

Louis Hayes at Smoke

With the Village Vanguard taking a break to figure out their streaming issues, I’ll probably promote fewer gigs here for a bit. I’m guessing that most of you now know where to check each week to see what’s going on. Of course, I’ll still post about gigs that I’m really excited about, which is why I’m posting this one.

Louis Hayes is a hero of mine and I love the album Undercurrent by Kenny Drew that he plays on, which not many people who I talk to are very familiar with. It’s definitely worth checking out.

And for those who haven’t seen this, My Music Masterclass put out a Louis Hayes Masterclass that’s very affordable.

I’m absolutely thrilled that I’ll get a chance to see him play this weekend.

Streaming Jazz Gigs 9/11 – 9/12

I’m really excited about this weekend. Last year around this time I saw Kenny Washington with the Bill Charlap Trio at the Village Vanguard and a couple of years ago I saw them at the Dakota here in Minneapolis. While watching a live stream doesn’t compare, it’s the best option we have to see the masters play live and I’m not complaining!
