KSTV: Will Barry Trio - January 27

Not a lot I can say about tonight that hasn't already been said about these three fine players on other evenings, in different settings, at this most charismatic of venues.

It may now only be a studio recreation of the legendary Broadway Market bar but the ambiance is still there and, with the build up of a worldwide audience, there's a sense of community spirit about it.

The emphasis tonight was on drummer-less piano trios such as Ahmad Jamal, Peterson, Cole etc. and in Barry, Archer and Sach it would be a struggle to find three musicians more suited to the task.

No surprises in the repertoire: It Could Happen to You; You Stepped Out of a Dream; Darn That Dream; Smoke Gets in Your Eyes; So Danço Samba; I've Never Been in Love Before and a bopper that I failed to recognise.

Maybe just another day at the office but it beats working from home.

Tomorrow night it's the Joe Webb Trio with Joe Webb (piano); Ferg Ireland (bass) and Jason Brown (drums) reworking the magic of Erroll Garner's legendary album Concert by the Sea.
