Food served at Triple Door is from Wild Ginger -- they are famous for their duck. Got the duck last night and my table mates were eyeing it wistfully. Did not disappoint.

I wore casual clothes, but there was a variety, from nice/casual to dressy.

Description

The quartet, rounded out by pianist Holly Holverson, bassist Dwight Thompson and drummer Kevin Smith, formed in 2001 when Gibson returned from a touring stint with the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra. “It was a great experience for me,” says Gibson, who was only 21 at the time. “The orchestra played a huge role in my development as a player. There are very few bands that swing that hard anymore.”

Like much of the jazz that followed in the wake of the bebop revolution, the Clark Gibson Quartet is a tight, almost telepathic unit that modulates from themes and standards to passages of solo improvisation. The faint Latin tinge of the post-bop era is also evident in its sound, but the emphasis is on the sultry, unadulterated swing of vintage pop and blues.
