Craig Taborn – Live at Sunset-Sunrise – Mai 29 2011, Paris

I saw a really good show last spring. It was just a little bit of luck that I saw it. My wife and I were in Paris and, as I don’t know the city, before we left I searched online for live jazz. I found this Craig Taborn solo concert at Sunrise-Sunet. It wasn’t easy to get a sense of what kind of jazz Taborn specialized in just from a web search but he had played with good people so I decided to try it. I’m really glad I did, too… He really is an incredible musician… taborn_drawing

Incidentally, at the set break, I met another Brooklynite who actually lived in my neighborhood. He was a musician who was touring Europe with his band, Pitom. I haven’t run into him since I’ve been back or gotten a chance to hear his band but he was a nice guy and it was funny running into a neighbor halfway across the globe….
