New photo gallery: Tarus Mateen Trio

Tuesday saw me at Bohemian Caverns to check out the Tarus Mateen Trio. The gig featured Tarus Mateen on bass, a truly stellar and eminently accomplished bass player who is currently in residence at the Caverns and playing there every Tuesday in July. He was joined by Brian Settles on saxophone - a wonderfully unique voice on his instrument with a definite inclination to hold onto and fully explore each judiciously chosen note - and Terence Arnett on drums. Vocalist Brittany Tanner joined the trio for two tunes.

Check out the new gallery from the evening.

New photo gallery: Elijah Balbed Quintet

Last night, I escaped the 100 degree heat and ducked into the cool confines of Bohemian Caverns to catch the first gig with Elijah Jamal Balbed as bandleader. Balbed is a great young local musician who I've heard before with the Bohemian Caverns Jazz Orchestra and the Integriti Reeves Quartet so it was a pleasure to catch this great opportunity of his.

The set featured Balbed on saxophone, Kenny Rittenhouse on trumpet, Allyn Johnson on piano, Zach Brown on bass, and Quincy Phillips on drums.

I've posted a new gallery from the evening. Enjoy!

It was truly a pleasure to catch the Ravi Coltrane Quartet this Friday in the intimate confines of Bohemian Caverns. The quartet featured Ravi Coltrane, son of the legendary John Coltrane, on saxophone, E.J. Strickland on drums, Dezron Douglas on bass, and David Virelles on piano.

I've posted a new gallery from the evening. Enjoy!
