Jimmy & Wes/Tony & Pat



The Hammond Jazz Inventory announced this concert and I went to see it. I'm happy I did, let me tell you about it. On the one hand, Tony Monaco & Pat Martino deserve a much larger venue and audience. (Whenever they come back to the Netherlands they ought to play in the Bimhuis). On the other (hand), the intimacy of a small club (150 people there, to the max) with world's top musicians performing with so much energy is an unique experience. Most of the concert was a tribute to the music of Wes Montgomery, who did two recordings with Jimmy Smith of which the first is called Jimmy & Wes, the dynamic duo.


Believe me, Pat & Tony are a dynamic duo too. Supported by Louis Tsamous on drums - whose embedded short solo's are just right for me - they created a perfect Hammond jazz night in a classic guitar/organ/drums trio setting. It's amazing what three musicians with a dedication can do. To me the whole evening was a feast but I have to admit I have a weak spot for "Road song" that also appears on Further adventures of Jimmy and Wes. I hope Tony & Pat will have further adventures. And if so, I'd like to witness.








Thank you Merlijn, for the pictures.
