Marriott Brothers Quintet at Tula's

This was a really fun gig -- nice to play with Thomas again, and always a pleasure to play with Matt Jorgensen, John Hansen, and Phil Sparks. Tula's has such a laid-back, easy-going atmosphere, both for listeners and performers. I've enjoyed playing there for almost ten-years, and this particular night was no exception. Three sets of fun and games, from straight-ahead bebop like Hank Mobley's This I Dig of You, to more progressive sounds like Hand Jive from the second Miles Davis quintet and Kenny Kirkland's Inner Peace. And I can't say enough about Matt, John and Phil -- consumate professionals, all three of them, who are always at the top of their game. I'm sure you'll be able to hear this group again in the future -- Tom and I both felt like this was the direction we want the quintet to go in. Thanks to all of you who joined us that night -- a great listening crowd of appreciative patrons.
