Geri Allen is a virtuoso jazz pianist: as a soloist her playing was very complex, but contemplative, not fiery. I would have liked more fiery. I love the Atlas and wish more people would show up for performances there. Parking may be the issue.

This was a one-time performance; it was terrific. Progressive jazz from the 50's performed by octogenarian Teddy Charles and a talented group of young local jazz musicians.

I had the best seat in the house. All good.

This was really elegant, sophisticated music of a high order. It's a sound that hasn't been heard in decades. Almost symphonic in places. And to see the legendary Teddy Charles actually wielding the sticks was a privilege.
