Tea Lounge Wrap-up
The JFJO concert at the Tea Lounge was a blast on Monday night. The band sounded outstanding, even with limited rehearsal time, some different personnel for this gig, and a couple folks basically sight-reading this difficult music. Brooklyn saxophonist (and freelance photographer, it turns out) Bob Curtis came out and took a bunch of photos of us in action, which I’ll post when I get them. Incidentally, he also won the free CD pre-order when his name was drawn from among the email list signees — congrats, Bob!
We also got 16 new email addresses to add to our growing mailing list. Thanks to Ryan Pate for collecting them. Nice to also see quite a few returning fans.
9/19 gig canceled
BTW, although it was announced in the last newsletter, I didn’t get a chance to blog about the fact that our 9/19 performance has been canceled. Actually the entire event, the Gospel Jazz Festival at NY Presbyterian Church, was canceled (or hopefully postponed for a later date).
