Friday, September 4 – 7:30pm
Charles Thomas Trio
with Greg Jacobs on piano & Mark Lee on bass
jazz from the bookshop, live streamed

Bassist Charles Thomas plays jazz, soul, funk, reggae, classical — anything you could want. All of it with consummate skill, exuberance and expressive beauty. 

At Bird & Beckett, Charles plays jazz. He’s been heard from our stage countless times, most often in the company of drummers Mark Lee and the late Jimmy Ryan and pianist Grant Levin.  Tonight, for our live stream on YouTube and facebook, he leads a solid trio featuring pianist Greg Jacobs and drummer Mark Lee, reprising a trio we heard here back in 2017.

Guaranteed to please.
