New Swing Standard is the duo of guitarist Billy Stein and Stone Ridge resident saxophonist Joe Giardullo, returning to the Cafe with a nod to music both old and new. Billy and Joe are both veterans of the modern jazz scene, but both have their roots in an earlier tradition. In New Swing Standard, they bring their talents to the songs they heard and played coming up, and they pay respects to masters old and new. Hoagy Carmichael, Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Billy Strayhorn come together with Kenny Wheeler, Ralph Towner, Dave Holland, Charles Mingus and more.
The last time they were at the cafe, it was Rhythm Matters, a powerful quartet, with rhythm as its guiding idea. New Swing Standard celebrates melody and song, and it does it with beauty and grace. Guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
It’s very possible that there will be a special guest or two, as well.
