Tom McDermott & Evan Christopher @ Chickie Wah Wah
Chickie Wah Wah, one of our favorite Mid-City “joints,” hosts Tom and me for an evening of originals and classics showcasing the New Orleans clarinet and piano styles.[2828 Canal Street, New Orleans, LA 70119]
TUESDAY, September 19 (NYC):
I’m back at Mezzrow, NYC, the best listening room in the West Village with my partner Ehud Asherie. We will reprise material that we performed last April in New Orleans to commemorate the centenary of the closing of the Storyville district. Two shows at 7:30pm & 9pm (doors at 7pm) have very limited seating. Advance reservations highly recommended.
Saturday, 16 Sep, 2017: The 16th Annual “Jazz in Caz”
I’m looking forward to this one! This will be one of those “instant” bands, I’m certain. Of course, I can’t go wrong with Jon-Erik Kellso leading the way. And the drum-less rhythm section should make for some intimate “close-encounter” music.
Although this festival is admission free, a $10 donation is suggested for events at the Catherine Cummings Theatre.
Marian’s Jazz Room (Bern, Switzerland)
Sparks fly when the duo with Ehud Asherie performs in an intimate listening room like Marian’s. Ehud brings a deep virtuosity anchored in the Harlem stride style, while I do my best to extend the legacy of New Orleans clarinet. Can you imagine Jelly Roll Morton strolling around New York City or Fats Waller in the French Quarter? Well, that’s our special mix!
Tuesday – Thursday (Sept 5-7): Shows at 7:30pm & 9:30pm
Friday & Saturday (Sept 8-9): Shows at 7:30pm & 10pm
