Jazz in Nu Bronzeville... at Norman's Bistro

Jazz in Nu Bronzeville...
I'm sipping on a cherry coke and listening as the lights and shadows play their own night music against the African Masks and raw brick backdrop at Norman's Bistro.
Ernest Khabeer Dawkins and the young musicians are swinging some straight ahead intense jazz. ..
Duke Ellington's Caravan and I Didn't Know What Time It Was ....segues into Footprints....with a bit of Chicago styled atonal bebop layers...
It's a super potent mix of retro-nuevo Jazz in Nu Bronzeville.

Ernest Kahbeer Dawkins's Jam Session on Sunday nights at Norman's Bistro in the bar is a cool musical flight... into some straight ahead intimate Jazz...with Nu Bronzevillian nuances!

They were flowing through Footprints...Mr P.C.. A minor Blues and a ballad or 2...

So relaxed, musical and audience friendly...
