Park Slope's Daniel Smith, the most recorded
bassoonist in the world and in recent years one of a handful of
players in the world to adapt the bassoon to the jazz idiom, will
be performing with his quartet Bassoon and Beyond at the Kitano
Jazz Club on Park Avenue .
According to his daughter, this promises to be
an exciting event which will highlight the music from his jazz albums,
Blue Bassoon, The Swingin' Bassoon, and Bebop Bassoon. There will
be two sets, at 8 pm and 10 pm.
The Kitano is an upscale jazz club, recently
selected as one of the 100 best jazz clubs in the world.... and
the best part is there is NO cover charge!
His daughter writes:
"If you are free this evening, it would be wonderful to
see you there! And if you know of other people who would like to
attend, please spread the word and bring friends, family and anyone
who loves jazz. It will be for most of you the first time ever to
hear jazz bassoon performed live, as well as an evening of wonderful
music for your enjoyment."
Sets at 8 p.m. and 10 p.m.
