JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2010 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Amy Lavere Trio at Rochester Internation Jazz Festival

We ran into Frank DeBlase and he predicted that the Amy Lavere Trio might be the sleeper of the festival. Quite an endorsement. Amy wears high heels, sounds great on bass and has a cute voice. I wish she was standing front and center. The drummer is certainly not the attraction. Her trio sounded best when they played quietly enough to hear the lyrics but when they did this the crowd in the back of the tent only got louder. Her guitar player had a perfect touch and accompanied her like a real pro. They have a cool, timeless sound. - photo by P Doddy - click photo to advance > next
