    Hi there! Thursday night at Smalls, Jason Lindner's first set packed the room. Four players - Jason on piano, Mark Turner on tenor, Omer Avital on bass, Jeff Ballard on drums. Four tunes - Night Has a Thousand Eyes - nice choice .. Lost by Wayne Shorter - hanging chords .. Pannonica by Monk - lots of rhythm .. Siboney by Ernesto Lecuona - a danzon that evolved into more of a tarantella. Smalls' one-flight-down jazz den rose to another spiritual level. Your ear witness, Becca Pulliam
