    really sorry I missed this event. i was on the wait list and did check numerous times. At some point I got off the wait list, but didn't know it. I am familiar with Michael Sarin, the drummer, who played with the Thomas Chapin trio. Really wanted to hear him play. anyway, I hope to make another jazz event with this group.

    Great music, great setting. I'm sorry I missed meeting up with all of you, but not knowing any of you, I wasn't sure who you were! I did approach two small groups of people, but none of them were with the meetup group. Maybe when I'm back in the New Haven area next month I'll have more luck!

    Unique Oscar Pettiford compositions combining cello with bass in a jazz setting. Enjoyably interpreted by the OPP quartet.

    All I had hoped for, and more. My only disappointment was that the CD isn't due out for another year!

    Anyone want to carepool from Middletown or Walingford?

    June 5, 2014

  • Julie

    I saw Friedlander at Firehouse 12 a few years ago and he did some of the pieces about his family's travels - truly sublime! Lynn, I can carpool with you. Can you email me to connect?

    June 7, 2014
