Northwestern Massachussetts, The Berkshires, Heaven… Whatever you want to call it, it’s where I’ve been calling home for the past 4 years, whoa, how time flies. That’s ‘Winter’ in the picture on the right. Though I’ve never met her, I betcha she’s contributed to my cereal directly. Buy some milk or cheese while you join us at this concert…Farm-fresh food simply rocks.
Jason Ennis, my good guitar-playing friend and colleague has organized this very intimate concert series above the farm store at Cricket Creek Farm. With Jason and my OTHER great friend, double bassist Michael O’Brien from Minnesota/New York, we’ll offer up some really lovely jazz and pop tunes, many of which you’ll know, plus some freeform wanderings.
What is ‘AmboJazz’? Not worth taxing yourself over, it’s always been difficult for me to really come up with a suitable label for this quasi-jazz, quasi-ambient electronic music I play. However, if YOU come up with a label that resonates, I buy you a beer, or in this case, a loaf of farmfresh bread or eggs, or even a pound of beef. Quantum-Ambient is already taken though, perhaps that’ll start ya thinkin’. Suffice it to say that this trio creates an atmosphere that you can feel, along with a musical conversation between us that we enjoy as much as we hope you do, and some rockin’ jazz and funk standards to boot.
Come enjoy the evening with us, won’t you! We’d love to be the soundtrack for your weekend.
