But nothing beats being in the room
with the music & the musicians!

Thursday, July 12th – 7:30-9:30 pm
Ray Skjelbred Trio
$15 requested cover charge ($5-20 sliding scale)


Ray Skjelbred, piano and vocals;
Clint Baker, bass and vocals;
Riley Baker, drums.

Ray’s roots are in the blues and pianists like Joe Sullivan, Earl Hines and Art Hodes, and he plays like an angel. He’s a legend in the world of traditional jazz, traveling the circuit from his base in Seattle. Catch the documentary about him that’s screening in the upcoming New York Jazz Film Festival, “Piano Jazz: Chicago Style!” We think the fest runs in August at Raw Space in NYC. Look for it!

Here’s a recent solo performance by Ray.
And here’s one with Clint, among other colleagues.

Based in the Bay Area, Clint’s reputation as a player in the trad world, on cornet, clarinet, bass and any number of other instruments, is unrivaled. He’s also a musicologist of great repute. Riley is Clint’s young son, and is a helluva drummer, most widely known for his boundless prowess on the tuba. Word is he’s creeping up on the unsuspecting on trombone as well!

Katie Cavera, originally announced, is unable to make the date today. We’ll look forward to catching her on Ray’s next pass.

The IMA can be a conduit for you, if you join in to make it work.
