LIVE: Chuck Lamb/Joe Locke Trio @ Caffe Lena, 10/9/18
Review and photographs by Rudy Lu
October’s edition of Caffe Lena’s monthly jazz series led by pianist Chuck Lamb featured the legendary jazz vibraphonist Joe Locke as the special guest. Together with accomplished bassist Ira Coleman, the drummer-less trio entertained the audience with two sets of originals and standards.
They were clearly playing as much for each other as they were for the audience. As Lamb remarked, “Without a drummer, we can hear each other clearly and interact more easily.”
In between numbers, Locke entertained the audience with his background stories about the songs and experiences playing them.
