Floyd Camembert Reports

The memorial service for Albert Murray will be 1 PM Tuesday at the Allen Room at JALC. I'm planning to be there in person: Indeed, I believe it is open to the public, just confirm your attendance via email to specialevents (at) jalc.org. Those unable to make it to midtown in the middle of a Tuesday may watch on Livestream. I know something about the music planned for this event and expect it to be quite special indeed.


David King, pianist Bill Carrothers and bassist Billy Peterson take over the Village Vanguard this coming week. Listeners from near and far can listen in Wednesday for the NPR broadcast. 

Bill Carrothers gave me a very important piano lesson when I was about 13 or 14. It was at his house in Minnapolis, and in his basement that day is where I heard Paul Bley with Gary Peacock and Keith Jarrett Bop-be for the first time. So I guess in a way you can blame Bill for all of this...


Tuesday night is my next free masterclass, details under Upcoming.


The Sam Newsome/Ethan Iverson duo will be at Roberto's on Saturday September 14

The Seamus Blake group with Chris Cheek, Matt Penman, Jochen Rueckert and me is at Smalls Sept. 18-19.

The Billy Hart Quartet will be at the Atlas in Washington D.C. on September 25.
