I’m writing this post in delighted anticipation . . .
Harry Allen and his gifted friends have had a wonderful series of Monday night musical soirees at Feinstein’s at the Regency in New York City for more than a year now. The June 10, 2012 evening promises to be just as much fun. Harry will be there from 7 to 10 PM, performing two sets. The first will be with his quartet: Rossano Sportiello, piano; Joel Forbes, string bass; Chuck Riggs, drums. Then, after a short interval, the quartet will be embellished by Jon-Erik Kellso, trumpet, Joe Temperley, baritone saxophone, and perhaps a surprise guest.
If you haven’t been to Feinstein’s before, the drinks are large; the staff is friendly; the room is comfortable; the sight lines and the acoustics are first-rate.
Now here’s the part where readers have to — in the words of Jake Hanna — PAY ATTENTION.
Harry’s Monday night party is taking place on SUNDAY, June 10. Just this once. Feinstein’s is otherwise occupied on Monday, and no one wanted to miss a Harry Allen gig. So mark it down, check it twice, and join us!
Feinstein’s at Loews Regency is located at 540 Park Avenue (at 61st Street) on the East Side of Manhattan: call 212-339-4095 for information / pricing / reservations. Visit feinsteins for details.
And in case you haven’t heard Harry and Rossano recently, here’s a sample (recorded in duet at Smalls in mid-April):
May your happiness increase.
