Can’t forget the first time I caught JD Allen’s trio. They were working out ideas at Louis649 in the East Village, and their music was exactly what I needed that night – fierce, social, proud. That was three or four years ago. Tonight the wily tenor saxophonist moves his team (bassist Gregg August, and drummer Rudy Royston) to the Village Vanguard for six-night stretch. That’s called advancement. Here’s a blab from the Voice.
