I recently had the pleasure of photographing and recording the Dan Zemelman Quartet live at the Red Poppy Art House on August 15, 2008. The group featured Dan on piano, Fred Randolph on bass, Erik Jekabson on trumpet and flugelhorn, and Sean Hutchinson on drums.
The band has been rehearsing for some upcoming recording sessions lately, so they were playing pretty tight, but it’s worth mentioning that Sean was actually subbing for their usual drummer Alan Hall — although it’s not really a bad thing when your “sub” is the drummer for New Monsoon, even if he did have to sight read all night, heh.
I’d also like to thank Dan and the guys for letting me share a couple of live tracks from their performance that night. So enjoy the music!
