Levante Lounge – A New Home For My Trio

On Rideau St. (close to the corner of Dalhousie), there’s a great little club that’s been open about six months – Levante Lounge. I met one of the owners through a mutual friend and over a couple of months we collaborated to come up with an  invitational jazz jam night.

Every Tuesday night for the last four weeks, my trio (in one form or another) has been fortunate to have a steady gig. The trio has been JP Lapensee and myself as well as Matt Aston on drums or Alex Moxon on guitar – hopefully we’ll expand the trio’s alterations as this gig goes on.

The gig is run as an invitational jam, which means that you should bring your instrument out, but depending on how the night is going, there might not always be a full jam session going. If I know on Facebook, or via email, that you’re going to drop in, I can plan around that idea and it’s more probable that you’ll sit in.

We run it this way, because the space is small and we can’t have it turn into a free-for-all.

If you’re in the Ottawa area on Tuesday nights, drop in! Catch tunes you know done differently, or my favourites – not-so-standard-standards!
