Now's the Time: Steve Lambert and the KC Sound Collective
Take Five Coffee + Bar was so crowded for the KC Sound Collective's performance on January 4 that I had to stand in the back hallway near the bathrooms. The young group- saxophonist Steve Lambert, pianist Andrew Ouellette, bassist Dominique Sanders and drummer Brad Williams in the incarnation featured in the embedded video- play hard bop with fresh energy. They're heard to good effect in the murky video shot the next night at the Mutual Musicians Foundation. The members of the collective regularly perform together and separately. Facebook provides the most effective way to track their gigs.
