Week in Review

Sunday, August 21st, 2016

Here’s a sample from a tune played during the Jazz in the City (Westside) show on Thursday, featuring Elan Trotman and Brian Simpson. Their put together band included Rochester musicians Corey Owens (drums) and Carlton Wilcox (bass). They are featured on the clip.

Their synergy was excellent and the overflowing crowd on Park Street showed them much love.

We saw Wilcox when he played here with Frank McComb, and Owens when he played with Danielle Ponder.
