Scenes From Isaiah's Quartet

Scenes from the Isaiah J. Thompson Quartet at The Jazz Kitchen, December 2, 2023.

At the Jazz Kitchen, a full house live audience was in sync with Thompson on piano along with Juilliard classmates Julian Lee on tenor saxophone, Miguel Russel on drums, and Martin 'Marty' Jaffe on bass, bringing us into Thompson’s newly minted renditions of holiday music associated with 'Peanuts,' and other favorite Christmas songs.

NUVO’s Rita Kohn attended both sets. Read her full article here.
