Shelley Carrol Quartet at The Amsterdam Bar at 10 tonight. Shelley Carrol - tenor sax; David Zoller - piano; Andrew Griffith - drumset; Jonathan Fisher - upright bass. Should be a good crowd. Hope to see you there!

If you want a table, better get there early.

Monday Night is Jazz Night at the Amsterdam Bar

One of my favorite things to do in Dallas is to stop into the Amsterdam Bar for the Bad Ass Jazz on Monday nights. There's no cover for this weekly event, but it draws a large crowd and features key players in the Dallas jazz scene. The band is slightly different every week, but is based around the members of The Shelley Carrol quartet. The lineup can be anything from a trio up to a quintet (and occasionally a sextet).

Some advice about Jazz Night: it gets crowded, so if you want a table it's a good idea to get there by 9:00 o'clock. The music usually starts up between ten and ten-thirty and usually the band plays two long sets.
