Today (taking a cue from Twitter) is Music Monday featuring a weekly round up of live music in and around Brooklyn, NY.  (Until I can manage to fragment these disparate and random ramblings, please bear with me while I place them here on this blog.) Firstly and perhaps entirely is Konceptions, a musical series curated by James Carney (disclosure, he’s my husband).  Konceptions is presented at Korzo on 5th avenue between 20th and 19th in Brooklyn every Tuesday night with sets at 9:30pm and 11pm. Konceptions was conceived to be a simple jazz series that encouraged musicians to try out their new tunes, form new groups, spread out and explore in a laid back supportive environment.

Tuesday, which would be tomorrow for those of you who have not yet had your third cup of coffee, boasts a lineup of two power trios: At 9:30pm Todd Sickafoose, Erik Deutsch, and Ben Perowski. Then, at 11:00pm the irrisistible Tom Rainey, Ingrid Laubrock and Mary Halvorsen.

My very own very biased opinion about Konceptions and the quality of music coming out of Korzo on Tuesday nights is that it’s a series that is not to be missed.  Where else in Brooklyn can you see the best of the best for the price of a hamburger ($7) and no pressure to purchase the amazing European beers on tap?  Do you really want to travel into Manhattan and have a $125 night on a Tuesday?  Don’t answer that.

But wait!  There’s more.
