JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2009 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Nordic Connect - Rochester International Jazz Festival 2009

Nordic Connect at the Lutheran Church was melodic piano based compositions and featured two sisters on horns playing arranged parts with the trumpet player's husband on drums. For me they really hit the mark with a piece written by the trumpet player and dedicated to the planet. The piano player switched to the Fender Rhodes, the drummer played mallets and the tune sounded like something from Miles' "In A Silent Way" lp. Not like one of those tunes but just pretty. - photo by P Doddy - click photo to advance > next
