JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2005 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Lumiere

The early heatwave we had cleared out with yesterday's rain and this was perfect weather for the perfect band for the outdoor Gibbs Street Stage. Lumiere plays gypsy jazz but not as purists. They sound old world but which world is hard to say. Brian Williams (on bass) played with John Mooney for many years and the fabulous Bob Henry and The Goners for the last twenty. Roy Berns was part of Steve Greene's trio. Ed Marris on accordion plays with Stone Soup. They don't need no stinkin' drummer. They play Tuesday nights in the Little Theatre Cafe which is another perfect spot to hear them. - photo by P Doddy - click photo to advance > next
