What’s Summer without Friends? Do you know those folks up above? That’s (from the left) Glenn Cornett, the owner and creator of Spectrum. To the right is Lester St. Louis, Nate Thatcher and his lovely wife Mikayla. I met Nate and Lester only two weeks ago at Spectrum, only to learn that they’ve been ‘the guys’ who’ve been keeping Spectrum humming to wonderful effect during Glenn’s absence.
Nathan and Lester invited me to put a show together quickly and I in turn offered them, my new friends to join us for it! I then grabbed my old friend Johnny Butler, saxophonist from Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds, he grabbed his friend Kassa Overall, and I pulled my good friend Adam Cuthbért in as well for a well-rounded musical party. Come join us for an evening of music you haven’t heard before from a whole bunch of über-talented folk!
All of us heartily invite you to this end of summer event and hope to see you there! Click here for the Facebook event for details.

Also this week – Wednesday night, the 21st, sees me sitting in with yet another great friend, Jason Ennis, with a stellar band including my great colleagues Michael O’Brien on bass and Conor Meehan on drums. I’m so glad that Jason is showcasing his own music in this Zinc Bar performance, and he’s invited me to sit in on a few tunes. Here’s the facebook event. Please consider having a drink with us. Jason writes some great tunes, and I don’t get to play jazz nearly enough! (photo by KJKPhoto)
