Dharma All Stars gig recap July 27, 2008

Posted by Mike C. in Jazz, Personal.

Thursday night, for the first time in 15 months, I went to see John Favicchia’s Dharma All Stars perform.  The venue was Mirelle’s Restaurant in Westbury, New York.

On this night, the band consisted of:

John Favicchia, of course, on drums…

Chieli Minucci on guitar…

Mike Nunno (“NU-no”) on bass…

I lowered the brightness on Mike’s sheet music cover.

Carl Fischer on trumpet…

…and flugelhorn…

Bill Harris on tenor saxophone…

…and Bill Heller on keyboard.

The set list for the night was:
1. Horizons
2. Te estremeces
3. Coincidence
4. Sing a Song of Song (Kenny Garrett cover)
5. Kukuc (“KOO-kooch”)
6. Black (Cedar Walton cover)
7. Snakes (David Sanborn cover)

It was a great night of music and great to see the band perform again.
