All That Jazz
Our friend John Harrington is at it again, releasing another jazz CD. Turns out you don’t get rich teaching music in the Oakland School system.
There was a party at Club Anton in Oakland to mark the release, and his band, Deep Sea Quartet, played for the crowd of friends.
We went to see the show, and were surrounded by friends:
Every guy who ever went to a bar with a band knows to avoid the table with all the pretty girls right up front–they’re with the band, and you won’t get anywhere. I was reminded of this seeing Becky, right up front:
Rebecca was at Becky’s table, too.
Got to have a photo of the star:
And the bass and vibe players:
Club Anton is a pretty nice place. They offer a Peruvian menu of very good food (far too dark to photograph), which is served too slowly because they don’t have enough staff, at least when the Deep Sea Quartet is playing. The place was crowded, and I don’t think they were expecting such a large and hungry crowd.
Still, the decor is attractive:
The band played their first set and then we were gone. The younger folks stayed longer, no doubt.
You can get the music from Deep Sea Quartet on iTunes. Check it out.
