Eric Traub at Dos Jeffes

This evening there’s a lot going on in New Orleans as festival season gets into full swing.  Head down to Chalmette for the Crawfish festival and when you get back up to the city, consider Eric Traub with his trio at Dos Jeffes.  Traub is one of the most underrated saxophonists in the city.  Perhaps it’s because he just keeps a low profile and is a humble musician.  He did a long stint with Dr. John and is a founding member of the Forgotten Souls Brass Band.  He also can play louder than any tenor player I have ever heard.  A few weeks ago, he sat in with Loren Pickford at Dos Jeffes.  He filled the room with mellifluous sound without a microphone.  I expect the same tonight.
