On Friday night, I went to check out some musician friends of mine at a bar in DC called Duffy’s. It’s a cozy little neighborhood spot and the crowd was surprisingly supportive and down-to-earth.
The name of the band is Shorty Slim. The players: Chuck Carter on bass, Earl Ivey on drums, Giorgio Cafiero on guitar, and Bill Davis on sax/keys. They did two nice instrumental sets that I thoroughly enjoyed.
It’s so good to see talented musicians still working the local scene. They sounded great and I had a fabulous time. Here’s a video clip:
