Kevin Frenette trio plays for the Uncertainty Music crowd

Yesterday was an interesting day in New England. It was dark and dreary, the sky was weeping continuously like she was crying and the overall mood was “Tell me why I moved here one more time!”.

However, things changed towards the evening when I “swam” my way to New Haven to a place called Never Ending Books that features local musicians the second Saturday every month in what is known as The Uncertainty Music Series.

Yesterday saw Boston based Kevin Frenette trio featuring

James Rohr on fender rhodes,
John McLellan on drums
and of course Kevin Frenette on guitar.

The trio played five pieces of their own improvisational Jazz work for the Uncertainty audience, all of which appear on the following YouTube playlist in the order they were played:

A tip of the hat goes to Carl Testa for his outstanding contribution to the local music scene. His trio will appear on the next blog post as they played their own set of music.
