Another lovely day of

jazz at LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art)! Big crowd came out

this past Friday for the sounds of Anton Schwartz. Anton is a tenor

player born in raised in the right place, New York City. My first

encounter with Anton was actually in the Big Apple. He had a Monday

night gig at the Blue Note and my good friend Willie Jones was playing

drums with him that evening.


On this evening, I

caught the last set and the music was warm and pleasing. Anton was

backed up by some cats that I only assume are from New York as well,

but they as well are great players. Lots of energy, especially from the

pianist, who they tell me is only nineteen years old. The whole rhythm

section had a great time playing together, just what a bandleader

needs, harmonious synchronicity! I am sure that you will enjoy

listening to Anton do his thing. Charlie Owens said, “The music sounds

great tonight”.
