JAY ANTHONY GRANELLI is a truly fine bassist and runs the Love Slave label, home to a dozen great discs featuring: Jay's father, the legendary drummer Jerry Granelli plus many of Downtown's finest: Jamie Saft, Dave Tronzo, Brad Shepik (all 3 previous members of Mr. Lucky) and Ralph Alessi. Tonight will be the return of Granelli's Mr. Lucky Trio with current personnel: keyboardist NATE SHAW and inventive drummer/bandleader OWEN HOWARD. There are three previous discs from Mr. Lucky and each ones shows that they were one of best kept secrets in the Downtown local: jazz/rock/roots/whatever..! I get the feeling that Granelli & Mr. Lucky will once again whip it out, the good vibes and electric grooves to help soothe us in these current times of trouble.

Check out his bass duo CD with Pascal Niggenkemper called PascalAli. Mr. Ali's recent solo bass CD is one of this years most engaging and under-recognized gems.

A founding member of Dim Sum Clip Job (rare CD on Avant with Dorgon & Laura Cromwell from the mid-nineties) plus a diverse cross-section of Downtowners like Ellery Eskelin, Joey Baron, Reuben Radding, David Grollman... His last appearance at DMG, Rob was showing some strange videos while he played solo. This will be the DMG debut of Rob's new trio with BEN GALLINA on bass and ANDY O'NEILL on drums.
Acoustic Bass duos have become more common in recent years but Acoustic Bass trios are still pretty rare. Over the past few years, there have been a handful of newer Downtown bassists who have been experimenting of their respective instruments: Sean Ali & Pascal Niggenkemper both have solo and duo CDs out, using extended techniques to alter their playing. The ubiquitous bassist & bandleader, NICOLAS LETMAN-BURTINOVIC has also been experimenting on his bass and brings us a rare treat: an acoustic bass trio with NICK JOSWIAK and ZACH SWANSON.
