And tonight, I'll be missing Susie Ibarra Trio with Jenny Choi and Craig Taborn:
Holding her own in a field dominated by men, drummer Susie Ibarra composes fresh, original music that bears the influence of jazz, blues, contemporary composition, gamelan and the traditional music of her Filipino heritage. Admired even in New York's fractious free jazz community, Ibarra knows how to impart primal drive across a full range of tempos and dynamics while maintaining acute attention to form and groove.
They're playing HotHouse, which I really should visit -- the website and the club itself -- more often.

Free mp3s available, natch.
Tonight's Angel better be good, is all I'm saying.
Which is either a reason to download it or a reason to avoid it, I suppose.
