Update: The Larks

I went to Market Street Inn last night with the intentions of getting a bite to eat and to catch the first set of The Larks jazz band. I ended up closing the place down.
This band was so good that I kept telling myself, one more song and I've got to go. After all, I did have to get up at 5AM. That inner voice finally won out and persuaded me that "I can sleep when I am dead"!
The reason that I keep posting about and promoting my friend, Pete's band(s) is twofold. First, this is a music blog and second, I think that "good things should happen to good people". And Pete is good people.
As much as I like The Permilla Project(Pete's other band), The Larks are in a much better position to "make it" in the music business. The jazz genre is a smaller venue and thus has less competition. Good groups only need a "break" to get noticed. It is possible that The Larks may have gotten their "break" last night.
Sitting next to me at the bar, when she was not up grooving to the music, was the cousin of today's premier bassist, Christian McBride. Faye was so enthralled with the band, that she wants to send her cousin a sampling of their music. She told me that she thinks that it would be so great if Christian gave them an opening slot at one of his concerts. I think that it would be "good things".
