LUTHER THOMAS, CBGB LOUNGE 1/16/05

Well, I tuned in, and as you'd expect "technical difficulties" hampered any attempts to enjoy anything I tuned in to see, including the opening drummer-less avant trio featuring two females. Thomas played with a drummer only (name missed because of aforementioned td's) and dressed in baggy hip hop clothing (to hide new girth?) complete with dreadlocks and beard. From what I could make out, playing was smooth and evocative with tasty applications of Chancian scronk. Maybe next time cyberconditions will be more in my favor since other gigs of worth seem to be popping up not only at the Lounge but the gallery and main club.

the lineup of last nights Freestyle Jazz show at CBGB's was: diane wayburn, jessica jones & nick cudahy; andrew lamb & warren hill; burton greene, perry robinson & jay rozen. luther thomas did not perform as he never actually got here from denmark. passport problems or BS. i'm not sure. so it goes.
i'm also on the case about improving the quality of the web cast. stay tuned.
this is some of the stuff coming up:
