What is your most preferred band combination? Trio, quartet etc? Do you like playing in larger ensembles? Do you like to mix up the players or prefer to stick with a regular trio?
Piano trio is my favorite but I'm not opposed to quartet (my first CD is quartet with tenor sax) and my first regular gig in Boston was with a big band. I'm always open for the opportunity to play with any great musicians, my trio sounds best with my regular members since we've been together so long. We have a group sound and communication in which the result is a sum greater than the equal of it's parts.
Smalls is a nice place with really good talent and they usually webcast the performances. Also in the same (West Village) neighborhood Garage and Fat Cat are good ones. Best of luck and be sure to posYoko Miwa Trio responded on 02/17/2011 Next question
Just heard you on WRCB this morning! Loved it! I want to know the local laces you play.
