Thursday January 6, 2011 / 8:30pm (Overtone Quartet)Live Jazz at Birdland
General Admission - Host Escorted
How was your experience?
Birdland is a lovely venue with great service and excellent food. The Overtone Quartet only played six pieces and of those, only two were really good quality. The others resembled a compilation of tiny vignittes pushed into the same musical piece randomly. This quartet is rather quick, upbeat and sometimes downright noisy. I usually really enjoy live jazz music and this was just mediocre: tolerable but nothing to rave about.
