It's one of the greyest months of the year, but the Craig Pedersen Quartet is fighting that by warming up Café Nostalgica's November Wednesdays.

At his opening show on November 3, Craig Pedersen's trumpet work alternated and weaved with Linsey Wellman's sounds on alto sax and bass clarinet, before a highly attentive and appreciative audience. Playing originals and a wide ranging selection of pieces from Zorn to Ellington, Pedersen left ample space for Mike Essoudry on drums and Alex Mastronardi on bass to respond, and to express themselves.

The Quartet returns tonight with Phil Charbonneau on bass.
