Jazz At “The Spring”, Spring Street Gallery, Saratoga Springs
Spring Street Gallery, aka “The Spring”, located at 110 Spring Street in Saratoga Springs is one of the most intimate concert settings in the Capital District. If you blinked your eyes twice you’d think you were at folk music ‘house concert,’ but these take place in a small gallery with the feel and texture of a jazz concert as if you are in your living room.
It’s one of the most wonderful concert settings you could imagine with that feel that you could ‘reach out and touch the musician’ vibe.
This past Halloween in 2019, photos below, the monthly event (on the last Thursday of every month), curated by Mark Kleinhaut, featured the DTR Trio with experimental guitarist and Jazz legend; Dom Minasi, cellist-composer Thomas Ulrich and bassist Ratzo B. Harris, both of which worked with a whose-who in the wide-ranging musical spectrum from Classical to Jazz, including pop. The long-short of the concert event was that the crowd filled the room and loved the trio’s performance which was a great success!
However, on January 30th, 2020, the Tarik Shah (bassist) and Mark Kleinhaut (guitarist) duo will perform a masterful repertoire that defines the mastery of their individual instruments within the jazz improvisational idiom.
