Kurt Elling Quintet at the Green Mill
And they were, of course, awesome. Great mix of standards as well as new stuff from the Grammy-nominated new recording. If you can see Kurt Elling live, go. Now. They return for another gig tonight and I will have to see if I can swing that.
Patricia Barber at Unity Temple
This closed the 2012 series of the Unity Temple concerts and the setting was a little, well, weird. Look like mostly concert subscribers, with the commensurate age brackets, and not too many jazz folks. Not sure how many Patricia Barber, along with Larry Kohut on bass, won over, but I enjoyed it. I had secured front row (!!) seats in what is already an wonderfully intimate setting for such a duet concert.
