VTY Jazz Arts produces great show
Sunday, June 14th, 2015
VTY Jazz Arts produces great shows that reflect their love and dedication to this music. Yesterday's tribute (6/14/2015) to Clifford Brown and Booker Little was a great example. VTY assembled an "A list" of musicial talent at their new upper westside venue, The West End Lounge. Through two smokin' sets. this ensemble brought to life the music of these Be-bop masters in fresh and unexpected ways. The musical dialog was intense and the full house of jazz devotes could not get enough of it. Viatly Golonev and Marquis Hill, both on trumpet created an exciting contrast of modern styles and ideas that were rooted in the tradition. These two were joined on the front line by the firey young female alto player, Erena Terabuko and by the very in-demand trumpeter Bruce Harris for the final number, Clifford's Joy Spring. Theo Hill on Piano, Peter Van Nostrand on drums, and Mike Karn on bass were solid as rocks while driving and responding to the dialog. A big thank you to Arnie and Nat for pulling this together. Their hearts are in the right place and they deserve our support to keep it swingin' every month.
