For the next stage of my career I will be leaving New York for the time being to concentrate on my studies at the University of Miami. There I will begin working on my DMA (Doctor of Musical Arts) in Jazz Composition in a lush setting of palm trees and ocean breeze.
Of course, New York will never be far from my mind and I hope to visit back there whenever the opportunty presents itself, as well as continued trips to Europe and elsewhere during school breaks.
Friday, Aug. 9: My final gig in New York City will be at the Bar Next Door performing standards and originals with my trio. Sets are at 7:30, 9:30 and 11:30. As this is a very small, intimate venue (seats about 30!!!), make sure
to reserve a place. $12 cover.
The Russ Spiegel Trio:
Russ Spiegel: guitar
Gary Wang: bass
Anthony Pinciotti: drums
About the Bar Next Door: Slightly
larger than a nice sized efficiency apartment, lit by votive candles,
and bedecked with dark wood, it would be an understatement to call
this subterranean West Village bar intimate. Jazz trios, crammed into a
corner of the room near the working fireplace, play seven nights a
week, as snuggling couples and self-styled enthnomusicologists lounge
on dark leather banquettes while sipping wine or martinis. (There's an
exhaustive menu for the former.)
