Adam Rogers @ Jazz Standard 2/3/11

It was a fun set of jazz with a lot of talent. My favorite part was the drum solo but it was all great.

NYC native Adam Rogers has appeared on over 200 albums and has toured extensively both in the US and overseas. As a high–value sideman, Adam has gigged and recorded with contemporary music leaders ranging from Norah Jones and Walter Becker (of Steely Dan) to John Zorn and Simon Shaheen. The gui¬tarist has released a series of acclaimed albums on the Criss Cross label including the captivating trio date, Sight (2009), with John Patitucci and Clarence Penn. Writing in JazzTimes, Bill Milkowski noted his “rich, clear and full tone, along with Rogers’ uncannily fluid linear style, pristine articulation, and daring improvisational streak.”
