The Lost Trio with Ian Carey

Originals and the likes of Bird, Monk, Ornette, Wayne Shorter…

The Lost Trio, now celebrating 28 years of wandering through the landscapes of jazz, is excited to announce the latest chapter in their collaborations – this time with trumpeter/composer Ian Carey. These long-standing Bay Area wizards will perform compositions by Carey, along with their tradition of surprising their audiences with unexpected song selections, including a few tunes by the saxophone giant and recently-departed Wayne Shorter.

The Lost Trio has been at it as a unit of deep and adventurous improvisors for more than a couple of decades. Top flight players all.

And Ian?

Having studied in New York with jazz legends including Reggie Workman, Billy Harper and Andrew Cyrille, he’s lived and worked in the Bay Area since 2001, performing with local bandleaders including Bryan Bowman, Nathan Clevenger, Lewis Jordan, Mark Levine, James Mahone, Anne Sajdera, Adam Shulman and Suzanna Smith; and in ensembles including Anthony Brown’s Asian-American Orchestra, the Electric Squeezebox Orchestra, the Circus Bella All-Star Band, the Morchestra, the duo B. Experimental Band, and the North Berkeley Jazz Quintet, as well as appearing with visiting luminaries including John Daversa, Anton Schwartz, and Satoko Fujii. As a composer, Ian has received commissions from Chamber Music America and Intermusic SF, and was named as one of “12 Bay Area Composers You Should Know” by SFJAZZ in 2018.
