Omer Avital Group @ Smalls Jazz Club

  • Apr 6, 2010 · 9:00 PM

Omer Avital - Bass
Avishai Cohen - Trumpet
Joel Frahm - Tenor Sax
Jason Lindner - Piano
Jonathan Blake - Drums Since I moved to NYC in 2001, I've had the opportunity to see these amazing musicians in many different ensembles, but Omer's quintet dates have stood out as some of the most engaging and inspiring performances I've witnessed. Combining masterful compositions with tremendous, sometimes telepathic improvisation, IMHO this group truly represents some of the most vibrant and living music on the new york scene.

Since its inception, Smalls Jazz club, located in the West Village, has been an incubator for many brilliant performers, hosting late night jam sessions until the wee hours, and providing an intimate atmosphere where the energy between the musicians and the audience thrives.

This show is slated to start at 10pm, but given that the venue is pretty small (I'm guessing it holds around 75), and space is allocated on a first come-first served basis, I think 9:00 is a good time to arrive, which also gives us a bit of time to mingle before the show starts.

Smalls charges $20.00 per person for the night, and while my plan is generally to target the free-to-inexpensive (0-$15) range for these meetups, I think this event is worthy of a bit of indulgence. I believe the cover includes a drink ticket.

Hope to see you there!

Geoff
