Bono at the Lenox Lounge.
Edun’s party at the Red Rooster wrapped up last night around 11 p.m., but Ali Hewson, the conscientious fashion label’s founder and Bono’s wife wasn’t ready to go home yet. Instead, she led the dwindling crowd, including Bono, Tom Freston, Julie Gilhart, Loomstate co-founder Scott Hahn, Grizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor, and U2 stylist Sharon Blankson a block away to the classic jazz club Lenox Lounge, where they filled two booths and a small portion of the bar, much to the surprise of patrons.
They got another surprise when Bono sang an impromptu ballad with pianist Lafayette Harris and his jazz trio: Cole Porter’s “Night and Day,” with an improvised last verse to include a reference to Lenox Avenue, and one of those Bono-fied “heee-eeees” at the end of the “day-eeeee.”
It was a good end to ours.
