Double Residency - Second Night: Assaf Kehati Trio and Ehud Ettun Quartet

"I'm playing with Ehud Ettun in my group for more than a year now and I really love his playing on my music and also his original compositions.We toured with my trio nationally and internationally but I always love to come back playing at the Lily Pad, so together with the Lily Pad we decided to dedicate an evening for both of our bands (mine and Ehud's) and to do it once a month that people can closely follow the bands regularly and enjoy a monthly evening at the Lily Pad." For us, the Lily Pad is a great home for our music." Assaf Kehati

The Fringe

The Fringe are one of the genuine living treasures of the Boston jazz scene. Originally formed back in 1971 by tenor-saxophonist George Garzone, bassist Richard Appleman, and drummer Bob Gullotti as an outlet for their free jazz improvisations, The Fringe have entertained and enlightened Boston area jazz audiences for over 30 years. Bassist Appleman left the band in 1985 to become Chairman of the Bass Department at Berklee College and was replaced by veteran bassist John Lockwood.
