    Charlie Burnham is a Brooklyn violin player who has had the wonderful good/bad fortune to earn a living playing music.  He has done this with the help of some famous people who hired him to play and record their beautiful songs.  These famous people include James Blood Ulmer, Henry Butler, Wynton Marsalis, Cassandra Wilson, Nora Jones and many others who I’m leaving out with apologies. It’s a particular joy for Burnham to be playing at the Owl because it’s located right between the two schools where he got some early music training; PS 92 on Parkside and Rogers, and Lefferts junior high on Empire.  Joining Charlie tonight will be Fred Cash (bs) and Kirk Knuffke (trpt)

    Combining intimate jazz improvisation with cinematic melodies and rock-and-roll verve, DRINKING BIRD is a trio that draws from a liberally defined American Songbook to build a sound of its own. Comprising New Yorker Eladio Rojas on the drums, Norway-bred guitarist Jacob Matheus, and Pacific Northwest native Tree Palmedo on trumpet, the members of Drinking Bird have performed with folk singers, pop stars, rock bands, and a host of jazz greats. In addition to original material by its members, the trio tackles numerous jazz standards, country tunes, and pop songs reflective of the band’s eclectic taste; the sparse instrumentation lends a uniquely nuanced approach to Elliott Smith and Thelonious Monk alike. Several video projects and a debut album are in the works.
