singer mark murphy is bringing is funky, impressionistic, free-wheeling style to the Iridium this week starting on thursday and concluding on sunday. it is my hope to catch him early sunday... and report back asap.
his recent album, love is what stays, is really a great piece of work and has some excellent song as well as arrangements on it. i look forwards to seeing how these are tackled in a live setting. what size his band will be (the iridium stage is not HUGE but Lee Konitz did get his nonet on there without have to move the piano off-stage... so... it could be anything, couldn't it?)
(Kinch... is on the back burner while i try to get my fall teaching obligations in order).
