Live Review:
 Larry Luger at Notaro Ristorante (March 9, 2010)By Alex Henderson             Some jazz instrumentalists are not very proficient when it comes to interacting with singers, but that has never been a problem for New York City-based guitarist Larry Luger. And the strong rapport he enjoys with vocalist Sandy Jordan was very much in evidence during their March 9, 2010 appearance at Notaro Ristorante, an Italian restaurant on Manhattan’s East Side. For several years, Luger and Jordan have been performing together on Tuesday nights at Notaro—and Luger demonstrated that he is as comfortable in an instrumental setting as he is playing with a vocalist. Jordan has a strong cabaret/Broadway/traditional pop background, but she is also an avowed admirer of Ella Fitzgerald and is capable of getting into more jazz-oriented endeavors; Luger’s swinging yet melodic guitar playing, in fact, seemed to bring out more of her jazz qualities on enjoyable performances of familiar gems ranging Jerome Kern’s “Dearly Beloved” to The Beatles’ “Yesterday” to Don Raye & Gene dePaul’s “I Remember April.“ Jordan is by no means a jazz purist, but jazz has clearly had a positive effect on her. When Jordan wasn’t singing, Luger excelled as a straight-ahead bop instrumentalist on well known standards such as Ralph Rainger’s “I Wished on the Moon” and Jimmy McHugh & Dorothy Fields’ “Exactly Like You.” Another highlight of the evening was Luger’s interpretation of “Boulevard of Broken Dreams,” which he gave an appealing Latin-flavored treatment. Rounding out Luger’s ongoing Tuesday-night trio at Notaro are acoustic bassist Bob Arkin and the 84-year-old drummer Angelo Ferrara, who has been playing jazz since the 1930s.            Notaro is located at 635 2nd Avenue between 34th and 35th Streets.
