Here are 4 jazz choices in NYC this week. NOTE: I included Nicholas Peyton
because a short time ago, he was a shining star of New Orleans music on
trumpet. He now pursues fame and fortune in hard bop and electric fusion.
Note also the Flushing Town Hall concert with Clark Terry et al. I grew up
not far from there and Louis Armstrong's last home and current museum is
also close by. May not be OKOM for all of us, but that group of jazz masters
is certainly worth a hearing if you are in the area.
NEW YORK TIMES - November 17, 2006 - JAZZ LISTINGS (Excerpted)
MUSIC OF BENNY GOODMAN (Tuesday through Thursday) This appropriately
high-spirited tribute to the King of Swing will feature Ken Peplowski on
clarinet and Bucky Pizzarelli on guitar. (Through Nov. 26.) At 7:30 and 9:30
p.m., Dizzy¹s Club Coca-Cola, Frederick P. Rose Hall, Jazz at Lincoln
Center, 60th Street and Broadway, (212) 258-9595, jalc.org; cover, $30, with
a minimum of $10 at tables, $5 at the bar.
NEA JAZZ MASTERS (Tonight) Every year the National Endowment for the Arts
bestows the encomium of Jazz Master to a handful of distinguished veterans,
like the trumpeter Clark Terry, the saxophonist Jimmy Heath, the trombonist
Benny Powell, the pianist Dr. Billy Taylor, the bassist Earl May and the
drummer Tootie Heath. If that sounds like the roll call for a combo, that¹s
because it is, at least for a couple of hours. At 8, Flushing Town Hall,

NICHOLAS PAYTON QUINTET (Tomorrow) Nicholas Payton, an abundantly gifted
trumpeter, has recently oscillated between hard bop and electric fusion,
producing good results in both areas. The group he leads here, which
includes Mike Moreno on guitar, Vicente Archer on bass and Marcus Gilmore on
drums, could move in any direction he chooses. At 8 p.m., Miller Theater,
Columbia University, 116th Street and Broadway, Morningside Heights, (212)
