Back to Square One? Soon.
Drummer Carlton Owens brought his trio (our friends Dennis Baraw on the bass and Rand Lines on the keyboard) to the bricked patio of the Square One Fish Co. on Thomas Street this afternoon, adding a spicy jazz garnish to the well-prepared and presented brunch entrees. It turns out that our old friend Arva manages the new eatery. Small world! She’ll do a great job. She’s already doing a great job, judging from my grits and shrimp and Pat’s Caribbean shrimp salad. I ate every single bit of mine. Shouldn’t have, but did. Great music, guys, as always. And Arva says jazz will be on the menu every Sunday brunch. Sweet. We’ll be filling up our frequent eater card very soon. For more photos, check my jazz blog.
