In the seven years since he closed the Bird, Brooks has continued to perform throughout southern Michigan, but he hasn't had many chances to play in Ann Arbor. The newly opened Ravens Club on Main Street has seen fit to make up for this, and now the Ron Brooks Trio has a regular Wednesday night gig at that restaurant and bar, with pianist Tad Weed and drummer George Davidson joining Brooks. The Ravens Club likes to think of itself as harkening back to speakeasy days, but none of this gets in the way of enjoying the food, drink, or music, and the jazz seems to be bringing people in. An upright piano is set up in the window on a platform, and the trio is backlit by the Main Street night scene. The area in front is occupied by serious listeners, while those for whom the music is just background sit in the rear of the long room.
