NYC for the weekend

  1. I had no idea that you like jazz!

    I love this phrase:

    As I watched Ezra Collective make music together, I thought, they are saying I love you without saying I love you

    A friend of mine in college recommended Smalls to me when I went to NYC in 2000. I saw a big band there on a Monday night, and sat about 3 feet away from the saxophones. I was visiting NYC with a friend from Germany, and we stayed at a youth hostel in Harlem. He wasn’t feeling that well that night, so I went by myself. It is more fun to enjoy a concert with a friend, but I am glad that I went. When I went they did not have a liquor license, so it was bring your own beer or flask, and you could order soda or juice as mixers. I was only 20 so I couldn’t buy alcohol yet though.

    I have just been thinking about blogging about concerts I go to, because my memory is pretty hazy now about most of them.

    Last May I drug the whole family to see Nate Smith and Kinfolk in Rotterdam – a couple work colleagues joined us as well. I was a bit worried that it was a bit too out there for most people, but everyone enjoyed it. I would highly recommend seeing him.

    I had not heard of the Ezra Collective before. I just checked them out and I really like them. Thanks for exposing me to them. I see they are playing in Rotterdam in July. I smell a return visit 🙂

    1. If you have the chance to see them, I’d definitely recommend it! I couldn’t stop smiling the whole time and after the show. Their energy is so fun. They filled me up.


  2. Such a lovely write-up, I felt like I was there. I’m working on a theory of sound and vibration and what happens in a shared space, I think there’s something pretty special.

    1. It definitely felt different being in an intimate space where the music was being created right there in the room. I felt connected with the sound and the people and something sublime that I’ve not felt in larger venues or listening to recorded music.
