In a recent posting on the Jazz 90.1 JazzList on Yahoo Groups, Tom Kohn of the Bop Shop CD (and LP) store in Village Gate is leading off his Fall season of jazz and other music by presenting Bassist Michael Bisio and his Quartet on Monday, September 18th at 8pm in the Bop Shop Atrium. There is an $8 suggested donation. As Kohn points out, Bisio:
[I]s no stranger to the Bop Shop. He's played here several times: back in 1996 with Charles Gayle, 1999 as a member of Joe McPhee's Bluette and most memorably in a wonderfully intimate duo concert with Joe McPhee in 2000. But we've never presented him leading one of his own ensembles. So we're really excited to present his quartet to lead off the fall season of Bop Shop jazz concerts.
The Fall lineup is available on the Bop Shop's website, so check out the whole thing. Tom consistently presents some of the most provocative and diverse music and has had a great influence on the lineup of the Rochester International Jazz Festival.
