Chris Bergson live performance update.

From Chris' online newsletter:

I am very excited to announce that the Chris Bergson Band will be performing at New York City’s legendary Smalls Jazz Club on Wednesday, December 16th. This world- famous Greenwich Village basement club has long been a home for countless jazz greats, and remains one of the city’s hippest, most comfortable listening rooms. This show will showcase the jazz side of the Chris Bergson Band’s catalog and will feature saxophonist Jay Collins, bassist Matt Clohesy and drummer Darren Beckett, fresh off the road with acclaimed vocalist Madeleine Peyroux. This show will feature selections from Chris’ back catalogue as well as new arrangements of classic standards and soul jazz – It’s going to be a great night, and I hope to see you there! Here are all the details:
