The Octet! The Octet! The Octet!
Birdland, 315 West 44th Street, 581-3080
A superb tenor saxophonist leading a quartet, with a sound as fine as silk.
This trio has the potential to rival Jarrett-Peacock-DeJohnette and any other configuration you can name.
A New York seasonal traditionCedar and Mac the first week, Cedar and Herring the second. Merry Xmas.
