Swinging to the Alex Lo Dico Ensemble, Underground

Alex Lo Dico Ensemble, NYC
Photo by myself at the 34th Street subway station, in Midtown.

The 34th Street subway station was swinging to the music of the Alex Lo Dico Ensemble, Monday night.

I've taken photos of this group before. They perform at this station once in a while, and are a crowd favorite. You can hear their brassy sounds two floors below on the subway platforms.

The group's namesake, Lo Dico, plays the trombone. He was meeting and greeting the audience during these shots. Their alto sax player played a fantastic extended solo.

I posted about the Lo Dico Ensemble earlier, here.

Great photos and great story, Kitty! I've probably said this in the past, but while we have music in some subway stations here in Chicago, the level of musicianship just seems higher in New York. You got me curious about the group's music, so I found this short YouTube video of them performing in the 34th Street station. They're a lot of fun!

I like hearing music this way. (Or other kinds of music at, say, county fairs). Don't like being squeezed into anti-comfort chairs, between strangers.
