With the advent of the summer months, a number of venues close down (mostly those on college campuses) but, here in Connecticut, June remains a busy time.

Here's a taste of the ECQ:
That evening, there's a whole lot of music going on. The Buttonwood Tree, 605 Main Street, presents the Danny Fox Trio at 8 p.m. The Brooklyn-based Fox (piano), a graduate of Harvard, plays in the "pit band" of The Big Apple Circus and has worked with the Max Weinberg Big Band but the Trio is his main vehicle. Bassist Chris van Voorst van Beest and drummer Max Goldman interact in an organic fashion, pushing the music in fascinating directions. The pieces Fox writes for the band are always evolving on the bandstand as the Trio finds new modes of expression. Their debut CD, "The One Constant" (Songlines Records), was issued about a year ago to strong critical praise (my review is here) and I, for one, can't wait to hear how the music has grown.

Lots more to write about and I'll do just that very soon. I've also added a download to my review of the new Orrin Evans CD, "Flip The Script" - check it out at bit.ly/Lc6UfT.
