Hey was anyone checking out Peter Bernstein on the live feed from Smalls? He most graciously invited me to join him for a couple songs at the end of his solo set. What a great cat.

Ok you posted 10 Jun, there is a Bernstein date on Smalls' at 9 Jun. That must be it! Gee, I'm a frickin' genious.

It hasn't been uploaded yet though. Looking forward to it. PLEASE do tell us more though Jeffrey. Conversations you had, vibe, etc. I would like to live for a second through your eyes in the land of the greats.

Respect. Cool

I didn't realize when I posted that the audio was archived. It's a pretty shoestring operation I think, someone will probably take care of it eventually. I think they also offer refusal to the artists and I don't know for sure what Peter's stance is there. Some guys might not like the archives to be available. For me the event itself was sufficient. Peter is brilliant, beautifully understated and soulful. I saw him last week too with Bobby Hutcherson at Birdland, he was kind enough to invite me in back to play his amazing Ziegler.

I already knew him from several years ago, so it wasn't like I was stepping in from nowhere and into his gig. We caught up some, talked about our kids I think - nothing super glamorous.

That was just the first night. I had two-plus weeks of further great times with a pretty amazing cast of characters, and some really good pizza. and bagels. Gonna have to go back next year, too much time passed since I left.

Not to be dropping names like some kind of lame-o, but some of the other notable folks I saw while there included Dred Scott with his trio, Jonathan Kreisberg, the incredible Fred Hersch at the Vanguard (twice!), with Billy Hart and my personal favoritest-ever bassist John Hebert, the exciting Matt Ray at Smoke with Danton Boller, the amazing Jean Michel Pilc sight-reading the charts for Tony Moreno's quintet, the singular Ben Monder in duo with Bill McHenry (playing mostly free but also throwing in I Fall In Love Too Easily for good measure) ...I heard Jack Wilkins play duo with Bucky Pizzarelli to a room full of guitar players. what else?... Grant Stewart quartet with brother Phil, and Joe Magnarelli quartet, and Ari's Punk Bop, and a bunch of other time spent at Smalls, where they treat a playa right. After-hours jam session at Fat Cat. I played a couple good gigs too.
