March 2022 at Lowlands

 

As of October 2021, there is music weekly at Lowlands Bar (543 3rd Ave.) in Gowanus, Brooklyn. Sets are at 7:30 & 9 PM each Tuesday, and my friend Dierk Peters is curating Wednesdays at 8 PM (Our Borough Series). All shows are suggested donation ($10 strongly encouraged, if you can), and we hope you'll join us or spread the word so that this series can continue as a part of the Brooklyn jazz scene ca. fall 2021 and beyond.

Many thanks to KEYED UP!, a program of Jazz Generation, whose financial support allows us to compensate performers fairly for their work and for us to sustain weekly programming at Lowlands Bar. 

March 1, 2022: Dana Saul Sextet

Dana Saul - piano, compositions
Adam O'Farrill - trumpet
Kevin Sun - saxophone
Patricia Brennan - vibraphone
Walter Stinson - bass
Matt Honor - drums

Dana Saul is a tremendous composer, pianist, and musical thinker. Playing in his sextet has been a highlight of my time in New York, and I'm thrilled to be a part of this performance of long-awaited new music and heavily revised older pieces. Check out his 2019 release CEILING if you missed it when it came out.

March 8, 2022: Earprint

Tree Palmedo - trumpet
Kevin Sun - saxophone/clarinet
Simón Willson - bass
Dor Herskovits - drums

This date was rescheduled from late December 2021 due to the Omicron surge. As I'd mentioned, this will be the first Earprint gig since December 2019, and Dor is driving down from MA to make the hit. We'll be playing some selections from the past two records plus a few new songs.

March 15, 2022: Nathan Bellott Trio

Nathan Bellott - alto saxophone
Simón Willson - bass
David Frazier Jr. - drums

Alto saxophonist Nathan Bellott fills in for me on the Ides of March. A musician of strong integrity and discipline, Nathan is a peer I admire and I hope you'll check out his music.

March 22, 2022: Happy Trio XX

Kevin Sun - saxophone
Matt Penman - bass
Joe Peri - drums

The 20th iteration of Happy Trio brings the fabulous bassist Matt Penman and the wonderful drummer Joe Peri together. Joe and I played together for a year in the Manhattan School of Music Precollege in 2008-2009, but we haven't really gotten to play since then, so I'm looking forward to this reunion.

March 29, 2022: Kevin Sun Quartet

Kevin Sun - saxophone
Adam O'Farrill - trumpet
Walter Stinson - bass
Matt Honor - drums

"Quartet," or "trio plus?" I have some new music for chordless quartet, with some microtonal ideas thanks to the instigation of my friend SeaJun Kwon. Come check us out.
