"Lyresto" - Daniel Dufour Trio ft. Tommy Howard

      Last Saturday, July 14th, the Daniel Dufour Trio played a wonderful 2 sets of music to a packed house. It's been a bit slower since the summer began, but its clear that more and more people are catching wind of us, and Daniel has a name that is quickly rising to the top of the scene for jazz in Austin!

     This track was the final tune of the night, featuring guitarist Tommy Howard, as he sat in for the entire second set.  

     Pianist Damian Garcia masterfully presided over the melodies and harmonies for the first set, but his adaptability and intuition in supporting Tommy was speculator as well. Bassist Richard Mikel, a staple of the Austin scene for years and currently residing in New York City, came down for a short run to Houston, San Antonio, and ultimately played in Austin for us at Monks on his final night in town. 

     We'll be publishing a few more songs recorded from this "iPhone on a stool on the bar", they've seemingly come out great!

    Thanks to you patrons who are helping to support this event series and what we're able to bring to Austin's music community!
