Fabie Anstee Trio

Mike Finnerty with Fabie Anstee Trio!

Posted by in Uncategorized

We are delighted to announce that Chicago tenor saxophone legend Mike Finnerty will be joining us for our Solstice Party at Uncommon Ground on December 21st! Mike’s playing combines a deep reverence for such greats as Coleman Hawkins, Lester Young , Dexter Gordon and John Coltrane with a lively, irreverent style that engages the listeners ears, heart and sense of humor. This really promises to be a special gig and we can’t wait to hear him play our Fabie Anstee Trio original tunes!

Album Review by Sean Ryan

Posted by in CL, Derbhile, Home CD, music, news, Rob

Album Review Home The Fabie Anstee Trio By Sean Ryan As someone with none-to-negative knowledge of jazz music, I’m not very qualified to review a jazz album.

  We had a great time playing at the HELPSudan benefit on December 6th.  We resisted the urge to play “Happy Birthday” for Rob, but we played just about everything else in the songbook!

Thanks for a great time!

Posted by in CL, Derbhile, Home CD, music, news, Rob

We had an amazing time at Grace Street for the album release party. Thanks to all who came out, and to all who were with us in spirit (or “spirits” as the case may be). The first set consisted of just the tunes on the album. We took our time and enjoyed sharing them with you in the place where a lot of them were developed. The second set was entirely new original material. It’s a lot of fun for us to share our work with you, and we hope…read more
