07.15 2015 Mezzrow’s NYC

My old friend, Ehud Asherie, and I will reprise last month’s sold out duo show. That was my first time there, and I loved the room. Completely acoustic, it reminded me of a classic European basement club, …but cleaner. Check out the event on Mezzrow’s website, or see event details, here. Reserved seating for these shows is extremely limited (just over 30 seats).



Place: Mezzrow’s Jazz Club, 163 W 10th St, New York, NY 10014
Date & Time: 9:30 & 11, Wednesday, July 15, 2015
Line-Up: Evan Christopher (clarinet) Ehud Aherie (piano)



07.31 15th Annual Deer Isle Jazz Festival

Friday, July 31, 7:15pm
Clarinet Road opens the 15th annual Deer Isle Jazz Festival. My band has two of my favorite musicians from New Orleans and two living legends from New Orleans. Drummer Shannon Powell returns and Papa Don Vappie, who is known as a banjo virtuoso plays bass on this concert. Jon-Erik Kellso is the foremost expert on the vocabulary of early jazz trumpet but, like myself, endeavors to speak to today. Rounding out the rhythm section is guitar virtuoso Matt Munisteri.
