Miguel Zenon Quartet

Wednesday, June 17th, 2009

Miguel Zenon, Puerto Rican alto sax player/composer winner of Guggenheim and MacArthur grants is very smart, very accomplished, and a fine musician.  He played last night in the Yale Law School courtyard as part of the International Festival of Arts & Ideas in New Haven.  Quite extraordinary.

Last night was the first of the free on the New Haven Green concerts.  Buckwheat zydeco kicked off the summer music…not bad for the money either.

McCoy Tyner

Saturday, February 28th, 2009

Last night at the Regatta Bar in the Charles Hotel in Cambridge we saw/heard McCoy Tyner.  Boy, he can play.  The trio also including Gary Bartz on saxophones was tight and first rate.  Tyner must be in his 70s and looks it but on stage you would not know it.  He is able to make the piano thunder.  One cool thing was he played a piece dedicated to his teacher: John Coltrane.
