Mondays @ Rue B, 9:00pm - 12:00am
This June, pianist Mara Rosenbloom keeps the blues going past happy hour adding bass & drums to form the Extended Play Trio! In residency all month, the group welcomes listeners in all night with 3 dynamic sets of blues tunes drawing from the repertoires of everyone from John Lee Hooker to Junior Mance to Thelonious Monk. Known for leading groups whose "spontaneous interaction transcends mental boundaries," Rosenbloom brings together the idiomatic verve of a rotating cast of New York's most in demand bassists & drummers to infuse standard blues & bluesy standards with a fresh spirit, without losing sight of the tradition that has made The Blues America's timeless music (The Chicago Reader).
