From James Shipp's Dirty Vibraphone Trio at Bar Next Door

Vibraphonist and percussionist James Shipp has been refining his trio concept for a while now, and last night’s show at Bar Next Door proved the work was worth it. Joined by Rogerio Boccato on drums and percussion and Dan Peck on tuba, Shipp played one of the most eclectic sets I’ve heard and managed to hold it all together within his broad musical vision.

James has been a guest on The Jazz Session. And, full disclosure, he’s also a member and a personal friend.

Here are some photos and tweets from last night’s show.

“@jamesshippmusic is really good at talking to the audience. Funny and engaging. Now playing a Finnish polska (not polka). Cuz why not?”
“And now a Brazilian ballad. This is certainly an eclectic set, yet it all hangs together well.”
“@jamesshippmusic on his move from Yonkers to Williamsburg: ‘Pretty much the same number of dog walkers and neck tattoos.’ #sarcasm”

“@jamesshippmusic starting off the second set at Bar Next Door with a smart arrangment of Hello/Goodbye by Lennon & Mac.”
“This arrangment of ‘Hello/Goodbye’ is so 70s it’s thrilling. @jamesshippmusic #jazzlives #paulisntdead”
