Allison/Scheinman/Cardenas @ Kush 11/15/10

It's a new thing that Ben Allison is doing on Sun nights.  It's a live rehearsal by talented musicians with different people each week.  They play for tips and it's very good.  It's a nice space, very comfortable.  It's Happy Hour until 9pm and drinks and food are about 1/2 off.

The music was awesome.  I really miss Jenny and haven't prioritized getting to Barbes for those early Tues night gigs.  She was phenomenal.

This was actually an amazing string trio.  It was listed in AAJ as having Rudy Royston instead of Steve.  It was just as good for me.  They did compositions from each of them and they were all phenomenal.  They played from around 7:45 for about 45-60 min.  They were going to do another set, but I needed to get home.  I'll save the next Kush set for another night and another band formation.
