We gotta give jazz drummer-promoter Joe Barna big props for coming up with some unique and creative venues for his shows in the wake of the early September closing of the Bread & Jam Cafe in Cohoes.

Last month, he brought baritone saxophonist Gary Smulyan into Professor Java’s Coffee Sanctuary on Wolf Road last month. (Read our review here.)

Now he’s bringing saxman Jerry Weldon in for a two-night stand at the Flights of Fantasy Bookstore in Colonie. In addition to Weldon on sax and Barna on drums, the trio will be rounded out by organist Kyle Koehler.

The Weldon trio shows are at 8pm on Saturday, November 6 and at 6pm on Sunday, November 7. Tix are $10.
