Django à la Créole @ Duc des Lombards
Monday, Tuesday 3-4 November 2014
This quartet finished our 6th season with small victories at the Snape Proms and Oslo Jazz Festival. There’s no fall tour this year, but we will return to Paris for two nights in a program we’re calling “D.R. Blues.” Denny Ilett is in the solo guitar chair to facilitate a deeper exploration of combining blues vocabulary with our Creole theme.
It’s the usual drill at the Duc des Lombards with two shows each night at 8pm & 10pm.
Little Gem Saloon – Jelly Roll Morton Celebration
Monday, Oct 18, 2014
On Saturday, October 18, 7pm & 9-m: Look out for this new ensemble that Don Vappie and I are forming: The Storyville Centennial Project. Combining Vappie’s brand of “Creole Jazz” and my agenda of finding new ways to treat classic New Orleans music, the group will showcase some bright talent on the New Orleans scene. Our debut at the Little Gem Saloon, appropriately located on the frontier of the fabled “District,” will celebrate Jelly Roll Morton’s birth anniversary.
