Wow! I’ve seen hundreds of shows at Jazz Standard over the past 5 years or so and “A Night in Treme” is one of a mere handful of shows that truly transform the club into a completely different atmosphere – I mean, the spirit of New Orleans was pulsating through every body of the sold out room on the very first set of the 3 night stand.
The stellar collective was helmed by Donald Harrison Jr. (celebrating his 51st birthday on June 23rd) with his quintet of Detroit Brooks (guitar), Zaccai Curtis (piano/keyboard), Max Moran (bass) and Joe Dyson (drums) and very special guests Cyril Neville, the Mardis Gras Indians (Shaka Zulu & Athanese Johnson) and Norwood Johnson. Donald’s nephew, trumpeter Christian Scott, was even in the house and blew on several tunes.
