Colter Harper – guitar
Tony Grey – bass
Dave Throckmorton – drums

Last night’s Space Exchange was billed as Colter Harper.  I haven’t seen Harper play in a few years and I was interested to see what his set would be like.  He was backed by a rhythm section of Tony Grey on 6 string bass and Dave Throckmorton on drums.  The set was made up of several of Harper’s compositions as well as some by Tony Grey.  Overall, I thought it was a great show.  As I’ve mentioned on this blog before, I’m not the biggest jazz guitar enthusiast, especially in a trio, but it worked here.  In the first set, they played Grey’s arrangement of Eddie Harris‘ “Freedom Jazz Dance”.  Here is a short video of that performance.
