Han Bennink and Friends at Club Midway
A great new venue on the Lower East Side.
This is becoming an annual event — Han visits NYC and we get together a posse to welcome him. This year we had the last minute pleasant surprise of a visit from saxophonist John Zorn. It was amazing to hear John and Donny McCaslin matching wits…
Matt Penman and Luis Bonilla added immensely to the proceedings.
And, as always, our man in Amsterdam, Han Bennink, gave us the unalloyed joy of improvisation. Here’s to many more Januaries with Han.
