John Hollenbeck @ The Bitter End for Winter Jazz Fest 2010 (more)
John Hollenbeck

The sixth Winter Jazz Festival in January brought some of the city's best jazz musicians to five Greenwich Village venues. With that lead in, the inauguaral Undead Jazz Festival will be happening in three of the same venues - (Le) Poisson Rouge, Sullivan Hall and Kenny's Castaways - on June 12th and 13th. Tickets for one night and two-night passes are on sale.

The lineup - almost perfectly configured to complement Winter Jazz Fest - includes Happy Apple (sideproject of the Bad Plus' David King), pianist Matthew Shipp, trumpeter Dave Douglas & Keystone (his cinema-scoring/inspired sextet), drummer-composers Dan Weiss and John Hollenbeck (who both appeared with different groups in January) and many more. The initial lineup is posted below...

Happy Apple is sloppy and Dave King has a huge ego in Bad Plus.

Any Vandermark 5, Weasel Walter, or Hamid Drake playing at this?

How can musicians possibly get paid on gigs like this! It's line-ups like this, where they pack musicians in like sardines in a can, that cheapens the scene. Musicians hardly get paid, and the quality of when they can do is less. Tickets might be cheap for audience, but you get what you pay for. Seems like the only one that wins here is the club owners.
