January 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, temporarily on hold due to COVID precautions). All shows are suggested donation only ($10 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. 

Tuesday, January 4, 2022: Happy Trio XVIII

Kevin Sun - saxophone

David Wong - bass

Vinnie Sperrazza - drums

The eighteenth iteration of Happy Trio brings together two deeply swinging artists: bassist David Wong and drummer Vinnie Sperrazza. I first heard David with the Heath Brothers band while in high school, and I met and played with Vinnie sometime upon moving to New York; we also recorded a rehearsal demo for Billy Hart courtesy of Ethan Iverson, and have played on and off since then.
