You can’t catch Acme Jazz Garage playing its regular gig at Timpano (the Hyde Park restaurant is temporarily closed as the state figures out coronavirus), so a spin with the band’s latest single, “Phil’s Blues” will have to do.

The song—retro jazz-blues recorded at the Springs Theatre in Sulphur Springs—arrived in late July, but was a regular staple during the band’s aforementioned Timpano residency. Upright bassist Philip Booth told CL that he hopes to combine the cut with some other tracks—some in the can, some yet to be recorded—and emerge with some kind of full release at some point.
