BACK TO DIZZYS
Following Ms. Wordens evening of ultimate realization (see Thursday), heres another terrific Lincoln Center marquee: Randy Westons African Rhythms at chic Dizzys Room, whose recent live release, The Storyteller, was recorded in the very same room. Westons ensemble (which generally veers between quintet and sextet) is inspired in its dance of African beat and modern jazz; prolific pianist Weston steers at their helm with a playful, sleek intelligence. He clearly holds a candle for this room; hear his outfit work a wonder or two in return.
