What, I ask you, could be simpler or more pleasing? Duke will be here for a whirlwind tour where every day’s a holiday:
Sunday, October 4: at The Ear Inn with Anat Cohen, Matt Munisteri, bassist and friendly sit-ins to be arranged.
Monday, October 5: Duke will be part of the trumpet section with Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks, which is always a treat to hear. (Sofia’s Restaurant in the Hotel Edison in midtown, of course.)
Tuesday, October 6: Duke and Ehud Asherie will play duets (and perhaps more) at Roth’s Westside Steakhouse (on Columbus Avenue on the Upper West Side).
Wednesday, October 7: Duke will sing out with David Ostwald’s Louis Armstrong Centennial Band at Birdland (5:30 PM).
Thursday, October 8: He will be one of the stars at Jack Kleinsinger’s HIGHLIGHTS IN JAZZ concert, bringing together Ehud, Anat, George Masso, Jackie Williams, and many others.
I’ve skimped on the details on when and where — but all of these sites have their necessary information on the blog. Yours in haste – – –
