JOHN LEE TRIO PRESENTS THE MUSIC OF RAY BROWN
Time 8:00 pm
The John Lee Trio brings together three of the West Coast's most swinging players to celebrate the legacy and music of bassist and band-leader Ray Brown. Famous for his swing, dynamics and tight arrangements, Ray Brown led one of the most successful touring groups in jazz history under his own name and worked with a literal who's who of jazz. Bassist John Lee is a no-nonsense player with virtuosity, a strong pulse and a deep understanding of the Ray Brown spirit. Pianist Nick Peck brings a freshness and creativity to the hard-swinging piano chair of the trio. Drummer Kelby MacNayr brings an electrifying dynamic, imagination and deep swing.
