Tonight at Dizzy’s, harmonica player Gregoire Maret performed with Federico Pena on piano, Grammy winner Ben Williams on bass and drummer Clarence Penn. The band played two sets. The sound was great, thanks in part to Patrick LaMarca, the talented sound engineer who worked at the club tonight, and who also does a lot of Blue Note shows.

The band performed some original compositions as well as the Stevie Wonder tune “The Secret Life of Plants.” Maret’s technique is impressive, and the band was tight. It was pleasant to witness a real complicity between Pena and Williams, and Penn, Williams and Pena formed a captivating trio.
