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).
Konceptions music series (@konceptions) has been mentioned in the Time Out New York article Things to Do on Weeknights for $10 or less. We are thankful to all of our exceptionally talented musicians who have helped to make this series one of the best kept secrets, and now one of the most sought after music series in Brooklyn. Time Out New York has identified Konceptions music series, presented at Korzo (@korzobklyn) as one of the best week night destinations for $10 or less and we couldn’t agree more, nor be more proud.
Here is an excerpt:
26. Konceptions jazz series
Three blocks from the Prospect Expressway, you’ll find some of the city’s most energizing jazz every Tuesday at Korzo. Composer and keys man James Carney gathers a collegial mix of veterans (pianist Fred Hersch, trumpeter Ralph Alessi) and younger players (pianist Dan Tepfer, vocalist Jen Shyu) around this Central European bar-restaurant’s back-room grand piano. This week’s billing features the Matt Pavolka Band (Tue 23 at 10:30pm). Bonus: Pitchers of all draft beers are $10 after 10pm. 667 Fifth Ave between 19th and 20th Sts, Sunset Park, Brooklyn (718-285-9425, myspace.com/konceptions).
