SmallsLIVE/Mezzrow Newsletter - June 26th, 2017

Dear Friends:

Sorry for the lateness of this letter - I had the undeniable urge to get to the Jersey shore and swim in the Atlantic ocean.  I'm glad I did but now I'm hard at work catching up here.  Anyway, the good news is that piano legend Kirk Lightsey is back in town and ready for our 2nd annual Kirk Lightsey festival.  This means two nights at Smalls (Wednesday and Thursday) with guitarist Ed Cherry, bassist David "Happy" Williams and drummer Jason Brown.  Then Friday and Saturday at Mezzrow with just Ed and David in trio.  Kirk was the light of Bradley's and his infectious spirit is still in abundant display even at 80(!) years old.  He plays with extreme joy and lack of any cynicism or effect - just the pure unadulterated spirit of Jazz music, fresh and bracing as a mountain river full of water from the snow on high....

Anyways,

Check the schedules, great music at both clubs.  I sincerely wish to see you there.

Spike
