Shutdown Live at SIDEBAR

Recorded in New Orleans on Friday, March 13, 2020 at the Sidebar SCATTERJAZZ series, this show was the first ever collaboration between these four musicians. In fact, some of us had never even met before that night.

Earlier this day, the mayor of New Orleans had announced that all bars and restaurants had to close at midnight (shortly after that, a complete closure of bars was enacted). Such a closure had never happened in New Orleans in 180 years. While the band set up, the energy in the room was palpably depressing as the musicians were confronted with deep existential questions. But, as you will hear, when the music started all of that was blown away and the night became all about music, interaction, listening and love.

Support the Sidebar New Orleans and the musicians! THANK YOU!
