Ellen Rowe 2011

Humor, too. After a brief onstage discussion mapping out the mayhem that was to follow, during which Siers asked Rowe, "Do you want us to both stink during your solo?" he played loud enough to drown out a marching band, while Rowe, who'd just returned from a teaching/concert tour in South Africa, pulled a green vuvuzela from under the piano and blew mercifully brief punctuations during Paul's solo. The goal of these hijinks, of course, was to compare and contrast what happens when musicians listen and when they don't.

Kurt Krahnke and Sean Dobbins will back Rowe for her April 3 show, and then Keller and Siers rejoin her for May and June's programs. Get your tickets early. There were very few empty seats at the March concert. Rowe's trio can--by George--teach and do.    (end of article)
