Ian Carey Quintet at Coda, Weds., 10/13

Ian Carey Quintet at Coda, Weds. 10/13Hi listeners—

I wanted to give you a heads-up about a show coming up in a few weeks which I’m excited about—the IC Quintet is returning to Coda (the site of our CD release party and one of our favorite new venues), right in San Francisco’s Inner Mission/Duboce neighborhood. (The food and wine are excellent, the Hammond B3 is the real deal, the music is happening, and the stage banter is… well, it is what it is. I’m working on it!)

We’ll be playing music from our new CD, Contextualizin’ (“a digital masters’ seminar” —All About Jazz), and 2006’s Sink/Swim (“Catchy and original” —Lewis Porter), plus several new original compositions and arrangements of tunes by American heavyweights like Charles Ives, Wayne Shorter, and Neil Young. (That’d be an interesting trio of dinner guests.)

So come on by if you can, and please share this with people who like jazz (or could just stand to get out of the house and away from “Jersey Shore” for a few precious hours). Here are the details:

WHEN: Wednesday, October 13, 7-11pm
