Sunday, May 22nd – 7:30-10 pm
A guided tour from a master of New Orleans piano styles
Macy Blackman at the keys, with Bing Nathan on bass!

Macy“Macy is as comfortable rockin’ Ellington and Gershwin as he is swingin’ Joe Turner and Eddie “Cleanhead” Vinson,” quoth an article by Andrew Gilbert in Berkeleyside.

But it’s New Orleans’ music that’s at the heart of so much of Macy Blackman’s music, ever since the mid 70’s when he began to specialize in New Orleans R&B after forming a tight bond of friendship with one of its masters, drummer Charles “Hungry” Williams.

Come down to Bird & Beckett Sunday, May 22nd and take a stroll with Macy and bassist Bing Nathan through the piano styles of Jelly Roll Morton, Fats Domino, Professor Longhair, Allen Toussaint, James Booker and other giants of New Orleans jazz and R&B.
