Now's the Time: Geri Allen
Geri Allen and Tierney Sutton will perform in a compelling double bill at the Gem Theater this weekend. I'm less familiar with Allen's work as a leader than I am with her stellar contributions to recordings by a few of my favorite artists. Steve Coleman, Paul Motian, Chico Freeman, Gary Thomas and Betty Carter are among the stars she's supported. Allen performs at the Gem Theater on Saturday, March 24. Joe Klopus wrote an excellent preview of the show.
