JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2009 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Neil Cowley Trio - Rochester International Jazz Festival 2009

We stood outside Christ Church for a while because the Neil Cowley Trio had filled the place. While waiting, one of the volunteer workers told us that there was plenty of room over at Max's because people were leaving in droves after each song. She described their music as "very contemporary", the way some people describe abstract art that they hate. We took this as a good review and made a mental note to check them out. Neil Cowley Trio are pegged as the British Bad Plus and that sort of works. The Bad Plus, though, are more rambunctious and unpredictable. - photo by P Doddy - click photo to advance > next
