Yuya Hunami Trio @ Jazz Cafe - May 22

See Lance’s review for the line-up. This is my take on it, in the form of a poem

Infinite number of beats in the Universe
The drummer catches some
And sounds them
Just for us
‘Chuck chuck chacky chuck’
No, onomatopoeia
Cannot cut it

Infinite number of tones in the Universe
Some caught by piano
Just for us
Always and forever, Nica’s dream on the sunny side of the street in Strasbourg St Denis
And Mozart dances in his grave to the new fangled rondo

Infinite number of depths in the Universe
Some caught by a bass foundation
Just for us
So dependable
And it knows how to take a bow

Three men made my night
Yet never laid a finger on me
Just laid it down
So, so well
Ann Alex
