$20 cover charge; $10 for students/musicians/low income.
The Lost Trio — Phillip Greenlief, saxophone; Dan Seamans, bass; Tom Hassett, drums — has a continuous 25-year history of close collaboration in creative music, “redefining the jazz standard” by way of excursions through tunes by Hank Williams and Herbie Nichols, Billy Strayhorn and Nino Rota, Irving Berlin and Joni Mitchell, Monk, Beck and Bjork. With a repertoire of 600 pieces, including originals by all three members, The Lost Trio finds itself intrigued and engaged exploring any terrain you can imagine.
For their engagement tonight at Bird & Beckett, The Lost Trio has invited the saxophonist and composer Beth Schenck to join them.

Visit www.bethschenck.com to hear some of her work.

The BBCLP is a 501(c)(3) non-profit...
