Larry Newcomb Trio

Amazing jazz band – Larry Newcomb Trio. Saw them at The Garage, a restaurant/jazz bar in New York’s Greenwich Village a couple of weeks ago. Four of them. A trio? Artistic license? Just spoke with Larry Newcomb on the phone. How do four make a trio? The day after they finished their latest CD their drummer joined them. It would be great to see this brilliant jazz band (trio or quartet) – guitar, sax, bass and drums – on tour. Perhaps the Kingston Jazz Society could host them in Ontario…. Their newest CD, Cliffhanger, is a gem.

I see a lot of bands, jazz and otherwise, especially in New York City. These guys were the best surprise of the year. Why have I not heard them/heard of them before now!?
