I'll be playing with the Dave Capello Trio this Tuesday the 14th of October at 10pm upstairs at The Blue Nile at 532 Frenchmen St. New Orleans. COME OUT AND CHECK IT OUT!
Dave Capello is one of the most unusual drummers in town. There is a reason; a background of very interesting radical theater and music situations in New York and Kansas City before his move to New Orleans 20 years ago. I interviewed Dave a few years ago. Surprising stuff. If you are interested in music ideas and where they come from and whether your ears are as open as you hoped you can check out the interview here...
Jeff Albert's Open Ears series has really become an event, over the years, for those still driven by music and sound. The fact that it goes on amidst the grotesque and never ending cheapening of Frenchmen St. makes it even more of a diamond in the rough.
This show will feature songs from the bassist, Cecile and Dave is trying to get me to do the same. She has a wild and varied background on the Chicago music scene including long stints with Fred Anderson and Famodou Don Moye (Legends everybody- google it- get involved in what goes in your ears! Ditch the complacent attitude!)) She sings really nice.
Oh yes- improvisation will occur for those of you enraptured by this central of all music language developments. There will be also elements of some other lines in music thinking.
