9pm - Pianist/composer David Cook is a Brooklyn-based musician heavily invested in the New York jazz scene and beyond.
In 2010, David released his first cd as a leader on the BJU record label. "Pathway" represents a move forward after years of sideman work in New York, nationally and internationally. Produced by jazz piano great Bruce Barth, featuring Matt Clohesy on bass and Mark Ferber on drums, "Pathway" is a collection of original works written for modern piano trio.
10:30pm - The Patch's very own editor Stephanie Carlin performs tonight alongside her remarkably blossomed band: Xander Naylor (electric guitar), Javi Santiago (piano), Russ Flynn (bass) and Wes Reid (drums).
Finding a sweet spot that forbids easy pigeonholing, Stephanie Carlin teeters on the line where jazz phrasing and spontaneity fuse with the melodic syncopation of funk and a lush, organic folk twinge. In an era of fluff, filler and intellectual starvation, she is a musical respite. www.stephaniecarlin.com
