To the Enrico Rava Quintet at Bruce Eaton's Hunt Real Estate Art of Jazz at the Alright-Knox yesterday, a terrific show. Rava's label contacted Bruce last year after Charles Lloyd came through, and told him that Rava was coming to the US to play a stand in San Francisco, appear at the Portland Jazz Festival,play a stand at Birdland, and then pop into Buffalo before returning home. In other words, Bruce has turned The Art of Jazz into the sort of prestige booking that artists ask to come to. Lucky us. Rava was terrific. I love that sort of post-bop stuff, and I love trumpet, and I love trombone. I think it is great when an elder statesman fronts a band full of musicians he clearly digs playing with.
