Now's the Time: Joey Calderazzo


Six degrees of Kevin Bacon has nothing on the jazz world. One of the joys provided by jazz is the constant shuffling of musicians. Take this clip. Joey Calderazzo appeared at the Gem Theater with Branford Marsalis last month. He's seen here with Dave Holland. The bassist will lead a band at the Gem Theater next month. Drummer Jack DeJohnette and the late saxophonist Michael Brecker seemingly played with everyone. Also in the band but absent in this brief clip is a guy named Pat Metheny. Joe Klopus previewed Calderazzo's gig Saturday at the Blue Room. Calderazzo will also participate in a master class and discussion earlier in the day. See the previous Plastic Sax post for details.

did anyone else at the masterclass notice how much of a bitter asshole he is?

Bitter? Yes. A******? I don't think so. I like him. Look for a full Plastic Sax report tomorrow.
