Come on out and see what we were thinking when we booked the strong pairing of Pete Rende, pianist with Loren Stillman’s band “Bad Touch”. Fantastic musicians abound on Tuesday August 20th with Bad Touch at 9pm and Pete Rende at 10:30p. As always a suggested donation of $10 per set / $10 restaurant purchase.

This is what Time Out New York had to say about the upcoming jazz at Konceptions Music Series:

Keyboardist James Carney’s valuable progressive-jazz showcase presents two strong outfits: the grouping of pianist Pete Rende, saxist Bill McHenry, bassist Matt Brewer and drummer Tyshawn Sorey (10:30pm), and saxist Loren Stillman’s outstanding working band, Bad Touch (9pm).

Jen performed live at Korzo in January; it was a solo production of “Inner Chapters”. Watch the video on YouTube here.
