Around Town

The Blue LLama hosted Jonathan B. Taylor’s Quartet with pianist Mike Malis, bassist Jaribu Shahid, saxophonist Marcus Elliott on May 2. The group is really one of the most exciting and underappreciated in the area. Their repertoire covered the canvas of modern jazz standards. Their performance of “Tenderly” was memorable, with Elliot’s soulful tenor and Malis’ sensitive chording. was in full swing!
