George Colligan Quartet at Ivories Tonight! Live Recording!
I'll be smiling if you come to Ivories tonight!
For those of you who live in Portland, you are in for a treat; tonight at Ivories(1435 NW Flanders) is the George Colligan Quartet. I'll be playing piano, and maybe some melodica if I feel like it. David Valdez is an amazing alto player, Eric Gruber is an amazing bass player, and Todd Strait is a killing drummer. (Killing means he sounds great, not that he has ever killed anybody. That I know of.) We'll be playing a lot of my original music, as well as some off the beaten path jazz standards. We are doing a live recording, so if you want to be documented on our recording, prepare your hands for clapping and come on down. It's a 10 dollar cover; Come on, it's worth it!
I leave you with a video of me playing with Al Foster, Eddie Henderson, Doug Weiss, and Eli DiGibri. This was recorded in Paris in 2007. Enjoy!
