Jazz session inaugurates New Year

They’ve been playing together for 30 yes, hard to believe, 30 years now. When they played together once again, this time at Canio’s Books the first Saturday in the new age of Obama, DePetris and Shaughnessy sizzled. They played a seamless set of Ellington standards, one with a samba arrangement; Sonny Rollins riffs, the beautiful St. Thomas had us all basking in the Islands; and some of DePetris’s own exquisitely wrought compositions. With so few places left to hear good jazz outside NYC, we are fortunate to have these masterful musicians right here in the ‘hood. Another packed house warmed up the room on a very cold night. Deep bass notes and the sweet voice of the guitar curled around the bookshelves, a command performance of American improvisation. Don’t miss our next set with Steve Shaughnessy on bass and Tom DePetris on guitar. Read the great review at Hamptons.com “Jazz Musicians Steve Shaughnessy And Tom DePetris Play To Packed House At Canio’s Books” by Colin M. Graham.
