Ben Allison – October 16, 2011

Ben Allison Trio  -  Abrons Arts Center  -  October 16, 2011

The Abrons Arts Center is part of the Henry Street Settlement on the Lower East Side.  Our concert-going history there goes back to at least the early 80′s, though this was the first one that was outdoors, also the first that I sketched.   I probably hear Ben Allison’s music – snippets only – on the radio more than any other artist, because he composed the theme to NPR’s “On the Media”.  That tune was not on the agenda here.  Only when he signed did I realize that he’s a lefty bass player, though he plays it “righty”.
