Nuyorican 2nite - Domaine in LIC tomorrow + more
Greetings. I send this email to you in mid deadline scramble. There's so much going on... morning coffee has already come and gone, so I'll just get right to it, as opposed to the usual blah blah blah. You're welcome.
Tonight! I'll be playing latin jazz trombone with the Willie Martinez La Familia Sextet. This is our first time back to the Nuyorican in 2015, and our first time in our newly anointed slot: The last Tuesday of the month. (Used to be Thursday.) The Nuyorican Poet’s Café is one of the very last old school arts vestiges in the Lower East Side. It's a kooky space, and a great band tonight. Get it while you still can.
Tomorrow, Wednesday Feb 24th, 8-11 I'll be leading a trio with Jesse Gelber on the piano and Brian Nalepka on the bass as we start the official first night of my residency at Domaine Wine Bar in Long Island City. I'll be leading a band every other Wednesday. It's really great to finally have a little steady situation in a cozy little place in my own hood. It's right by the entrance to the Vernon Jackson stop on the 7, one stop from Grand Central. Manhattan, you can do this. Oh, it's a short walk from the G too, so Brooklyn, you're not off the hook. So, c'mon by and say hi! It'll be a hang.
In other news, I was interviewed by Finn Miller for his radio show on WUSB, "The Revolution." I talk about the upcoming Pre-War Ponies release (pre-order your copy and help us get this thing out in the world...thanks!) and we kibitz about music for children's television, and the state of my messy studio. Tune in tonight 7-9pm EST (the 30 min interview will be sometime in there, I don't know exactly when) WUSB 90.1 FM here in the NYC area, and http://wusb.fm anywhere else in the world.
