Iverson/Newsome Duo @ Cornelia Street Cafe 3/2/12

It was their debut show, a World Premiere if you will.  It certainly is a great addition to an already super rich world of awesome music.  They did some of Sam's pieces, some of Ethan's.  They each composed new music for the duo as well as rearranged some existing pieces.  They also each did a solo piece.  They played for a full hour.  One of Ethan's was a Bad Plus tune they play a lot.  They told us all the stories of the songs which was also a lot of fun.

Great show and I'm looking forward to more.

Ethan Iverson, piano; Sam Newsome, soprano saxophone
