Sometimes setbacks can turn into . . . what? Advances? Co-Conspirators vibes player Rich can't make our upcoming gig at Wellesley Free Library on Sept. 21. So instead of a Co-Cons gig, it's now Steve & Cohorts. I'll be mixing it up with Co-Conspirators bandmates John Funkhouser (piano, bass) and Gary Fieldman (drums) in various duo and trio configurations. We'll do jazz compositions by me, Wayne Shorter, Lee Konitz, Monk, and others. It gives us a chance to stretch out a little on some things we wouldn't do with the Co-Cons. We may even unleash John on reggae melodica! I've played with John a lot, but always in his bass-player mode. This'll be our vocal/piano duo debut. Lookin' forward to it. Check the Calendar section for details on the gig. Sunday, Sept. 21, 2:00 at Wellesley Free Library.
