TWO BY THREE FOR BIX (July 25, 2015): ROB ADKINS, MIKE DAVIS, CRAIG VENTRESCO

I’ve been parceling out the musical delicacies from this Saturday-afternoon jazz festival (advertised as a brunch, but we know better) because they’re so good.  It was July 25, 2015, and the beautiful creators were Rob Adkins, string bass; Mike Davis, cornet and occasionally trombone; Craig Ventresco, guitar.  The site was Fraunces Tavern on Pearl Street in New York.

And the approving shade is one Bix Beiderbecke.

BLUE RIVER:

Thank you so much, Rob, Mike, and Craig, for this  gorgeous hot lyricism. Beauty triumphs over chatter any day.

May your happiness increase!

    Gorgeous stuff. Is Craig going to be back in NY any time soon and maybe doing a repeat of this trio? And do you have any more of their material to post? >

  2. To your questions! I don’t know Craig’s itinerary these days, but it’s always lovely when he does come to visit. And, yes, I do have some more from this trio — which, as I said, I am stingily sharing. Have you seen the earlier posts? They can be searched out easily on the blog. Cheers to you, MS!

  3. I am blown away by Mike Davis. Beautiful tone and Bix-type attack, plus lovely phrases.
    What joy!
