A Bugs Life (in Syracuse): The Sequel

Scott “Bugs” Allen is a one-man band of sorts. If you include vocals, he played about eight instruments during his evening set at Saturday’s Northeast Jazz & Wine Festival. He may be categorized as a jazz man, but at times his on-stage energy nearly reached Fishbone levels. He goes quickly, but seamlessly from horn to drums to bass, and despite some technical difficulties during the finale, he was able to send soulful shock waves thru Clinton Square with tributes to Prince and Stevie Wonder.

Allen wears many hats(literally had at least three buckets with him), but his sartorial splendor (fuchsia shirt, fuchsia loafers and patterned bow tie) never outshines his wonderful musicianship.

The vibes were the perfect precursor to the upcoming Jazz in the City series (Aug-Sept).

Allen told the crowd that Larry Luttinger and Joe Lee took care of his 3rd Scenario collective so well in 2014 that his return was imminent.

For the sake of our burgeoning music scene, we hope he comes back to the ‘Cuse again. And again. And again.

There’s a top 10 list somewhere as to why Frank Malfitano, producer, director, talent cultivator, and cultural savant “gets it” when it comes to showing pride for Syracuse and Central New York. Bringing Chief Lyons, the statesman, onto the stage at Jazz Fest tonight is high on that list. Respect.
