3 out of 4 members of Nots performed last Friday, at the Glitch Gallery in Memphis. Their set was an improv jazz set, the kind Art Blakey and other jazzmen of the late fifties and early sixties recorded for Blue Note. A mix of standards and original compositions, with improvised solos.
We suspected Natalie Hoffman looked at jazz for musical inspiration. Her minimalist guitar work on the album “We Are Nots” seems unrehearsed.
But sadly, I missed this, because I live 2,096.1 km from Memphis, in Canada, in the city of Montreal. The show was titled “Never Again” so this will probably never reoccur. Nobody recorded it either.
