Music sees him through. Since moving to the Bay Area from New York in 2000, vocalist/pianist/cornet player Macy Blackman has been a dynamic figure on the local scene. Nancy Wright on sax and vocals has all the right stuff to shake the room. Check them out. His quintet, the Mighty Fines, offers a singular take on the Crescent City continuum, combining the freewheeling polyphony of traditional jazz with the rolling grooves of Fats Domino and Dave Bartholomew. The song list includes jump blues to get you dancin', some gumbo grooves to make you stroll, slow blues to put you in the mood, and the surprising 'Papa's Cool Blues', an instrumental that conjures up a smoky Bourbon Street club.
