Shelley Carrol puts Bad Ass Jazz in the news!
The Amsterdam Bar's Bad Ass Jazz Night received a great write up over at Pegasus News, thanks to tenor saxophonist Shelley Carrol.
We think that Shelley and his friends provide the single best night of jazz to be found anywhere in Dallas, Texas . . . or maybe all of Texas, for that matter. The secret? The music is kept raw and improvisational, the way jazz is meant to be. The musicians can jam, interact, and tell their stories.
It's a unique scene, as the jazz band sets up in the back of our small bar. There's no room for a band stand or stage, and sometimes it's hard to tell where the band ends and the audience begins.
Join us Monday nights at The Amsterdam Bar for Bad Ass Jazz Night. Get there by 9:00 PM if you want a seat.
