Bebop Spoken There

Belá Fleck: "...he [Chick Corea] brought out the best in musicians. Not only would you get to play with him, but you'd get to play with the best version of yourself." - (DownBeat April 2021).

Marianne Solivan live streaming from Small's, NYC - April 4.

Small's stands defiant. Its doors closed to an audience, the Greenwich Village venue continues to present jazz seven nights a week. Some performances are sponsored, some aren't. Online donations are encouraged, one way or another, proprietor Spike Wilner keeps the show on the road. This evening, Nuyorican Marianne Solivan worked with yet another fine NYC trio, its guitarist, Leandro Pellegrino an outstanding musician. 

Ms Solivan and her trio have worked with any number of established names (Christian McBride, Roy Hargrove, Donny McCaslin) and their journey to New York City took a familiar route - prestigious music school studies, including Berklee and the New England Conservatory. This Sunday evening set embraced Bill Evans, Leonard Bernstein (Betty Carter's version of Some Other Time an influence on Ms Solivan, heard here at her best), Portuguese lyrics and Pellegrino a set-stealing performer.  Russell
