It’s always exciting to hear of a new club featuring jazz — and this one has all the right ingredients. The music will be curated by tenor saxophonist Vito Dieterle, someone whose taste I trust. (I heard Vito several times with Joel Forrester and Claire Daly: Vito’s a late Lestorian who likes to float his own melodies in the air — and a gracious fellow in addition.) The club itself is inside a 154-year old Tribeca townhouse. White tablecloths, interesting cocktails, beers, and wines. A French chef creating small plates full of flavorful food. A well-tuned piano. And the best musicians in town. I mean MUSICIANS.
On Wednesday, August 24, from 9 PM to midnight, Jon-Erik Kellso, Chris Flory, and Kelly Friesen will be there. That’s a wonderful trio — capable of creating the best kind of seismic disturbances.
Appropriately, this new place is called SILVER LINING, and it’s on 75 Murray St. between Greenwich and West Broadway, 212.513.1234.
I’ll have more to say about looking for — and finding — this SILVER LINING — when we are back in New York City in September . . . and my spies tell me that Michael Kanan and friends will be there one night, too.
The room seats about 100, so you might want to inquire about reservations: enterprises like these are worth supporting.
