Since his arrival on the New York scene in 2005, Ken Fowser has continued to steer traditional harmony in uncharted directions. His lyrical approach to line construction and depth of harmonic sensibility allow him to record and play all over the world. “Standing Tall” marks his debut as a leader for the Posi-tone label, and reflects a contemporary treatment of conventional harmonic concepts—a creative manipulation that has become part of his signature sound as a composer and an arranger, as well as a soloist. The Django opens for small plates and crafted cocktails at 7pm Wednesday-Saturday. Live music 8pm-Late. Reservations encouraged.
