Join us for the first live recording in 60 years at the legendary Cafe Bohemia!
Giant Step Arts presents the Leap Day Trio (Matt Wilson, Jeff Lederer & Mimi Jones) at the New Cafe Bohemia. This is the first recording in 60 years at the legendary club and was put in motion by Jim Austin Editor-in-Chief of Stereophile magazine introducing Jimmy Katz to Cafe Bohemia’s Christine Santelli. Matt Wilson explains, one evening the renowned jazz photographer, recording engineer Jimmy Katz, called me with a brilliant idea. He suggested we make a live recording at the recently reopened Cafe Bohemia as part of his non-profit presenting organization, Giant Steps Arts. The original club, which was a NYC favorite from 1955-60, was a venue where Kenny Dorham, Art Blakey, Charles Mingus, Randy Weston and George Wellington made celebrated live recordings....
