Spring Update: Three Sundays of Music

Hi folks, happy spring to you all! I’ve been keeping busy, recording what I think will be a great album with drummer and composer Bryan Bowman at the legendary Fantasy Studios, getting ready for my own recording there with the Quintet+1 in April, and playing as much as possible! I wanted to let you know about a few shows coming up which I think you’d enjoy…

First up is a show this Sunday at Rose Pistola in North Beach–pianist Ben Stolorow and I will be joined by bassist Doug Miller for an evening of standards, originals, and jazz rarities.

WHO: Ian Carey, Ben Stolorow, & Doug Miller
WHERE: Rose Pistola, 532 Columbus Ave, SF
WHEN: Sunday, February 15, 8-10:30pm
HOW MUCH: no cover!

The following Sunday, I’ll be back in North Beach playing with the great new big band The Electric Squeezebox Orchestra (formerly the Bay Area Composers’ Big Band, but it’s still almost entirely original music!), led by the great trumpeter Erik Jekabsen and featuring some of the Bay Area’s finest. This is turning into quite a hang, so don’t miss it! (With a little luck I may even have an arrangement to premiere).

WHAT: The Electric Squeezebox Orchestra
WHERE: Doc’s Lab, 124 Columbus Ave, SF
WHEN: Sunday, February 22, 6:30p
HOW MUCH: no cover!

And the Sunday after that, Ben Stolorow and I will bring our duo project Duocracy back to the landmark Old St. Hilary’s (on the hill above beautiful Tiburon) for a very special show featuring our unique take on rarely-heard gems from the American Popular Songbook. This is a great, intimate place to hear music and was one of my favorite shows last year.

WHAT: Duocracy (Ian Carey & Ben Stolorow)
WHERE: Old St. Hilary’s, 201 Esperanza St., Tiburon
WHEN: Sunday, March 1, 4pm
HOW MUCH: $20/$15 (available here)

Hope to see you there!
