Long-time Glen Park residents will remember the halcyon days of the Red Rock Lounge, Ric Lopez’s elegant little corner bar at Diamond & Chenery before Le P’tit Laurent took its place… and Friday nights in Glen Park always sizzled with jazz from a fiery quintet that featured Dave Parker on bass along with Jerry Logas on saxes and the late trumpeter Mike Pitre. Nowadays, besides a few choice farmers market gigs, they can be found regularly at Sheba Lounge on Fillmore and Barebottle Brewing Company on Cortland.

Dave’s group has grown to seven and eight pieces over the years, hitting hard on compositions by the likes of Mingus, Dolphy and Ellington.

Now, Dave adds a new element, commissioning works by the Southern California composer who goes by the the initials JAB.

We’re waiting with bated breath to hear what they’ve come up with.
