Jon-Erik Kellso, the Bard of Growl, writes that The Ear Inn (www.earinn.com) will be graced by two sets of Ear Regulars on upcoming Sunday nights:
Sunday, March 16, will find Kellso, Matt Munisteri, and Joel Forbes — honored members loyal and true — joined by the exuberant reed virtuoso Anat Cohen (www.anatcohen.com) for some musical explorations. Anat and Jon have often shared the bandstand on Wednesdays with David Ostwald at Birdland, and they will be playing at Symphony Space, under Anat’s leadership, in concerts sponsored by the Sidney Bechet Society this month. Check Jon’s website (www.kellsojazz.com) for details.
Sunday, March 23, will find Jon and Matt joined by the equally brave souls Scott Robinson, eloquent on every reed instrument you can imagine plus cornet, Eb alto horn, and unimagined others, and Greg Cohen, musical associate of Ornette Coleman and Marty Grosz.
Since The Ear Regulars are always graced by unexpected players, prepare for jazz ecstasies. You can always nap on Monday afternoon, on the job or not.
