The Dick’s Den Wednesday Residency program continues its jazzy spring with a May program curated by Tom Davis. The Ohio-bred, globally educated (Capital and University of Edinburgh in Scotland) guitarist is active with his own Trio, along with roles in Vaughn Wiester’s Famous Jazz Orchestra and other local bands. For his residency, Davis has assembled a lineup with some unique jazz performances and a soulful finale, and three of the four projects will be making their live debut. Each week’s show will run from 9pm to 1am (approximately), and the cover is $4. Davis was very kind to provide us with his thoughts on the different bands that will play each week:

A Tribute to the Paul Desmond/Jim Hall Quartets kicks off the residency on Wednesday, May 6th. With Davis on guitar, the evening’s band will also feature Alex Burgoyne (alto sax), Greg Wolfram (bass), and Dan DiPiero (drums). Davis: “I fell in love with this music at first listen. It is interactive, charming, and it swings with a seemingly effortless elegance. I’ve been playing and revising this book for years now and I’m really excited to bring it to Columbus.” Read More →

After local college jazz festivals and amid a spate of senior recitals, the local jazz scene (collegiate and otherwise) is plenty busy here in late April. And because I’m moving (locally), so is yours truly. So this week and next will be light on live reviews, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t jazz out […]
