Brooklyn Lyceum

Posted in Venue on 04/07/2010 by mandatoryattendance

Nate Wooley and Josh Sinton – Brooklyn Lyceum April 4th, 2010

Jeff Golick (of Destination Out fame) and I went to Brooklyn Lyceum to check out Nate Wooley with Josh Sinton, Matt Moran, Eivind Opsvik, and Harris Eisenstadt.  The room filled up quickly after the beginning of the set.  The music was relatively straight-ahead for Wooley, with even a tune based on the changes of Confirmation (adminttedly, I was unable to hear the connection, but I heard Ornithology earlier in the day and it was tough to shake that tune out of my brain).  The room sounded great and balanced.

Lyceum has shows on Sundays and Wednesdays with two sets each night.  The website isn’t too helpful with figuring out the line-ups of the bands.  I had to do some heavy research to even figure out who was playing with Wooley on Sunday.

4/11 – Matt McDonald’s Vicious World

4/14 – Adam Lanes Full Throttle Orchestra

4/18 – Mike Websters Quartet

4/21 – Ryan Pate Quintet

4/28 – Matt Renzi Quartet


Big Bands at Tea Lounge and Frank Carlberg hits

Posted in Venue on 03/09/2010 by mandatoryattendance

Tea Lounge is hosting big bands on Monday nights this month (maybe next month too?).  Bill Mobley’s band played yesterday and Frank Carlberg and Andrew Rathbun’s bands will be playing over the next two weeks.

Frank and Andrew had a short residency at the now closed Alphabet City venue The C-Note about 5 years ago.  They will have separate bands for the hits at Tea Lounge, but I would expect to see some of the same personel.

Andrew Rathbun Large Ensemble – March 15

Frank Carlberg’s City Band – March 22

Asuka Kakitani Jazz Orchestra

Frank Carlberg has a CD release party coming up on March 20th at Puppet’s Jazz with John Hebert and Gerald Cleaver.  He also is playing at The Jazz Standard on March 24th with George Garzone, John McNeil, Cecil McBee, and Billy Hart
