The Todd Nelson Trio (TN3) returns to the University Club, 141 Washington Avenue (at Dove Street) on Friday, November 5 from 8-10 p.m.
The band will have copies of their new CD, titled “HERE” available for $10.
According to a review by Mike Hotter in Metroland (9/16/10) “Todd Nelson is a preternaturally tasteful guitar player … the album is enjoyable from start to finish … his guitar lines hew mindfully to the emotional intent of... each composition…” The recording is “custom built for fans of instrumental rock and jazz” and “unpretentious enough … to please even those who don’t consider themselves aficionados.”
Greg Haymes, in a review on Nippertown.com (9/27/10), called HERE a “stellar break-out recording that is worth the wait …Nelson’s guitar sound is clean and crisp, but always warm, bringing to mind Bill Frisell…Despite his lengthy musical career, Nelson’s recorded output has been all too sparse. This album goes a long, long way in remedying that situation.”
On the first Friday of each month, as part of the University Club’s celebration of 1st Friday, one need not be a member to enjoy live music, dinner and dancing in the Grille Room, dress is casual, and cash and major credit cards are accepted. Drink specials will include the HERE Kir, a signature cocktail created for this event.
The performance is free and dinner will be served until 9:00 p.m., call 518-463-1151 for reservations. As Todd says, “the Club is a nice place to hang.”
