The Chosen (Bobby) Few

The June gig guide will be up shortly, but here's one preview note: As my colleague Mark Miller pointed out to me, the Rex has jazz pianist Bobby Few here in Toronto on Friday (June 3), playing at 6:30 pm. As Mark said, they don't seem to know what they've got: Few is one of the expat American jazz musicians who left the States for France in the late 60s, so he's generally more obscure in North America than he ought to be. But he's worked with (especially) Steve Lacy, Booker Ervin, Albert Ayler (with whom he grew up in Cleveland), Archie Shepp, Frank Wright and others. He'll be here with a frequent partner, ex-Parisian, now New York-based sax player Avram Fefer (an Ornette and world-music disciple who's worked for David Murray and Butch Morris), for what will no doubt be an underattended gig. Grab an early dinner and rush on down.
