One of my favorite places to read is Kaldi’s, a nice little coffeeshop on Ninth Street here in Columbia. I think they have pretty comfortable places to sit and read, and their turkey artichoke panini and pita chips are delicious. I wish I knew how they made those pita chips — just the right amount of seasoning, and great texture, crunchy yet chewy. But I digress.

Today, I decided to head to Kaldi’s to do a little comps reading,¬†and to my pleasant surprise, a little jazz quartet called the Ellipses Jazz Collective showed up. Always easily distracted, I decided to take a few photos and record some audio to put together a little audio slideshow.

Three of the musicians are MU students — Sarah Carney (sax), Annie Linders (drums/trumpet) and Lizzie Fraccia (piano). Isacc Foley (bass) is a student at Berkeley.

Lizzie said they started playing last spring to get some exposure, hoping to get some paid gigs eventually. Until then, they said, they’re pretty happy with the free coffee.
