The Forbidden Jazz Trio returns to Zocalo Café for an evening performance this Friday.
Jake Masri on trumpet, flugelhorn and vocals; Rick Husband on guitar Grahame Edwards on bass strive to reach audiences of all ages by performing a wide variety of timeless jazz standards. Representing more than four decades of experience, their blend of voice, brass, and strings will weave their collective magic through two sets of entertaining music.
Making a special appearance with the trio is Husband, who has performed extensively throughout Vancouver Island in big bands, traditional/mainstream jazz combos and country rock groups. Some of Rick’s well-known collaborations include: Indigo Jazz, (featuring vocalist Dale Grahame, & bassist John Hyde), Jenn Forsland Group, Jazztet, 6th Street, Jazz Noir, Georgia Straight Jazz Band, and CR Little Big Band.
He is a compelling musician, highly responsive to his fellow players. By integrating improvised lines with familiar motifs and genres, Rick is a master at communicating beautifully with his audience.
