World-class musicians...Time from the rhythm section was dead on...a nice melodic bass solo...spot-on Dreyer...Dreyer’s solo bass work was especially noteworthy for its good intonation in the thumb position...There was an easy depth to the music, if such is possible, as if the musicians were digging in hard, but were confident they were in touch with each other and that the audience felt that as well. The circle was closed. That’s what communication is about.—Steve Provizer, The Arts Fuse, February 27, 2018

- Sunday December 6, 7:00 pm EST. The Harvey Diamond Quartet livestream featuring Harvey Diamond, piano; Phil Grenadier, trumpet; Jon Dreyer, bass; Gary Fieldman, drums. Should be visible (and audible!) on facebook or just below on this page when the time comes. (It's a tough world for musicians right now; donations for the band of any amount, at any time, would be greatly appreciated.)
With luck, at 7:00 pm EST on Sunday October 18, the livestream will appear below, even for non-facebook users. If not, try here, regardless of whether you have a facebook account.
Please get in touch if you are looking for a bassist, cellist, or jazz duo, trio or larger group. Think about having live music at your next house party.
