Our season of local jazz artists continues this week when the Jeff Drummond Trio will evoke the sound of classic soulful b3/guitar trios (similar to Jimmy Smith and Wes Montgomery) at The Avalanche Bar and Grill at 7:30 p.m. on March 1.
Drummond is joined by his musical mates, Steve Fletcher (keyboards) and Jon May (drums).
The trio will perform jazz standards and pay tribute to great jazz guitarists’ compositions.
Drummond will include original compositions as well.
This is a rare chance to catch these exceptional musicians performing together in a different context.
Drummond’s latest CD project released in January 2015, Drummond & Hyde: Spoondrift, was recorded at Dove Creek Studios in the Comox Valley.
It comprises mostly originals performed in a mellow style: an acoustic format of relaxed and ambient instrumental guitar and bass music in the jazz idiom.
Drummond teaches individual/private and ensemble lessons in a variety of styles. He’s also a member of the teaching faculty at the CYMC jazz camp in the Comox Valley.
Admission to this stylish show is $10 for members, and $12 for non-members.
