While watching The Joy of Sax, at 59E59’s Theater A, it occurred to me that Jazz is often a conversation between instruments. Pat Bianchi’s Hammond B-3 organ chattered with Kenny Washington’s drums. Don’t think of the Hammond B-3 organ as belonging out of church? Think again. It has a versatile voice with lots to say for itself.

The three saxes, Pater and Will Anderson and Harry Allen held interesting commentary back and forth.
