At Sofia’s Ristorante (at street level — 211 West 46th Street, part of the Hotel Edison, between Broadway and Eighth Avenue), there will be a four-hour session featuring four extraordinary pianists and rhythm, this coming Saturday, December 4, 2010.
The “rhythm” is bassist Neal Miner and drummer Eliot Zigmund.
The pianists are Michael Kanan, Larry Ham, Tardo Hammer, and Pete Malinverni. The music will run from 7:00-11:30 PM, the four pianists alternating at the keyboard. I hope to be there . . . for a remarkable evening of jazz. I hope that some of my readers join me — and there’s a tradition of sitting-in at Sofia’s, so who knows what surprises may happen?
