Denise Kidder/Peter Barshay Jazz Duo
Britt-Marie's Restaurant and Wine Bar, 1369 Solano Ave, Albany
Join me and Peter Barshay for an intimate evening of spacious, modern interpretations of jazz standards and Brazilian grooves.
Top-flight acoustic bassist-composer Peter Barshay, who has performed with such players as Milt Jackson, Freddie Hubbard, Woody Shaw, Joe Henderson and Joe Lovano, made his debut as a leader with Pit of Fashion, which features his plucked wah-wah bass vibrating throughout. Having soaked up a lifetime of sounds on both coasts -- everything from salsa and straight ahead to funk-fusion, avant garde and music derived from the Afro-Cuban and Brazilian traditions -- he brings a wealth of experiences to his teaching and performing.
