This week the 4tet goes on the road for a short stretch of shows in Connecticut and New York…and we play on the local Richmond CBS morning show “Virginia This Morning”.
First on Tuesday May 8th, we’ll bring our free jazz sounds to the early morning local news. Free Jazz and Morning News are not usually talked about in the same sentence, so be sure to tune in to see what happens. The program is on CBS 6 in Richmond, and runs from 9-10am. We will play twice so we hope you’ll check it out or set the dvr.
Next, on Wednesday May 9th we’re going to New Haven Connecticut to play at The Uncertainty Music Series presented by the great bassist/composer Carl Testa. The show will take place at The Elm Bar (372 Elm St. New Haven, CT). Show starts at 9pm ($5 suggested donation) and we’ll be playing 2 sets of music, one of which will be the second performance of our suite of music based off of the book “Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee” by Dee Brown and on my own research into my family history.

Then on Thursday May 10th we’ll be playing at IBeam in Brooklyn, NY. This show will be with Blood Syndicate Trio featuring Darius Jones– alto, Jason Nazary– drums and Sean Conly– bass. Cameron, Darius and myself used to have a trio together when Darius was still living in Richmond called CUD, and we’re excited to be sharing the stage together again. The show starts at 8:30 and there is a $10 suggested donation. (IBeam 168 7th Street Brooklyn, NY 11215)
And if you happen to be in, or near, Richmond on Wednesday May 9th there is going to be a great show happening in town. The amazing Peter Evans and Travis Laplante will both be playing solo sets and this will be the second show at the amazing ForInstance Gallery with the phenomenal artwork of local artist Martin B. Johnson (http://www.martinbjohnson.com/) as the back drop to the show. They will be joined with a great trio of musicians from Richmond featuring Scott Burton- guitar, Pinson Chanselle- drums and John Lilley- sax. The last show featuring Bererberg was a great success and we’re excited about having these world class musicians coming to Richmond. We hope that you’ll come show support for the music.
