Bad news/Good News -First the bad : Due to a shoulder injury, Mike Stern has cancelled his appearances at Blues Alley with the quartet featuring Dennis Chambers ,Bob Franceschini & Tom Kennedy scheduled for September 8th thru 11th. The good news is that its now the Dennis Chambers Power Trio and will go on as planned. Gonna miss Mike, but it will be great to see Dennis Chambers leading the charge to REALLY let people know HE IS BACK!
It looks like Mike Stern will be back in action at the end of September as he takes his Mike Stern Band to Australia. That band is Chambers, Frenceschini, and Teymur Phell on bass in place of Tom Kennedy. Teymur Phell is an amazing electric and upright bassist who has been on the scene for a while, but is under the radar of most players. Check out this solo by Phell from a 2012 performance with The Mike Stern Band.
