Rob Duguay Quartet @ Cornelia St. 5/31/09

It's hard to go wrong with vibes and trombone in one band. I also find that bassist-led bands are usually pretty good. I enjoyed this and was engaged for the whole thing. It was great and a lot of fun.

Here's the listing from Cornelia Street Cafe's website:

Willie Applewhite, trombone; Tyler Blanton, vibraphone; Rob Duguay, bass; Nadav Snir-Zelniker, drums
Rob Duguay Quartet is an assembly of world class musicians who share an appreciation for cutting-edge modern music while simultaneously embracing the traditions of swing, bebop, and Latin styles of jazz. Duguay’s compositions are circular creating nice avenues for positively flowing improvisations (often swinging) and typically avoid common jazz forms (i.e. 16 and 32 bar forms). Rob Duguay Quartet performs original compositions running the gamut of musical styles and pays homage to such greats as Sonny Rollins, Cedar Walton, Wayne Shorter, Charles Mingus, and Duke Ellington by playing some of their jazz not-so-standards.
