Weekend's best live music: Mini Fest, Rubedo, Congress, Chingaso, Boombox and more
KATIE GLASSMAN @ LANNIE'S CLOCKTOWER CABARET
Given her background in Western swing, gypsy and vintage jazz and bluegrass, it's not surprising that all of those styles surface on Katie Glassman's sixteen-track long-player, Snapshot. While Glassman is clearly an able singer, her fiddle playing is exceptional -- which also makes sense, considering that she started playing when she was nine and has won a number of national fiddle competitions. While her gifted playing is featured prominently throughout the album, especially on cuts like the gypsy jazz waltz of "Ma Liason Avec La France" and on the '40s-inspired jazz of the title track, Glassman also tapped a number of local musicians such as keyboardist Eric Moon, bassist Eric Thorin and trumpeter Gabe Mervine to flesh out the arrangements.
TIERNEY SUTTON BAND @ DAZZLE RESTAURANT AND LOUNGE
Always a jazzbird with an infectious chirp, the singer has spent the past few years honing her audience-communication talents, which is not something every jazz proponent gives much attention.
Also tonight: Final night of Mini-Fest at 3 Kings and the hi-dive.
