Sidney Bechet Society Concert with Evan Christopher, NYC
The evening concluded with two excellent originals. Jon-Eric Kellso's "Blue Roof Blues," a funeral dirge for Katrina, that the clarinet morphed into a lovely, romantic and uplifting melody. Christopher's aforementioned "Follow the Second Line" was the perfect finishing touch to an inspired evening that bodes well for the continued creation of a modern yet authentic New Orleans jazz.
