Unusual lineup for Loose Gravel at Zocalo Café

It started with Sax’n’Violins a couple of years ago at the Zocalo.

It started with Sax’n’Violins a couple of years ago at the Zocalo.

Then came Sax’n’Bone. Now we have become Loose Gravel.

The original idea of Loose Gravel is so see what happens in a band with no guitar or piano. We tried and got excited about the experience.

Loose Gravel features Tony Morrison on sax and flute, Paul Nuez on trombone, Jay Havelaar on trumpet and James Lithgow on upright bass. Three horns and a bass make Loose Gravel.

They are excited for the opportunity to perform for you this Saturday at the Zocalo Café at 7:30 p.m.

These four busy local musicians will to get together and explore a variety of standard jazz and Latin tunes. The vibe, refreshments and meals are consistently first-rate at the Zocalo while the musicians have a wonderful time playing some of their favourite tunes.

We have enjoyed enthusiastic audiences in the past, and hope to see you at the Zocalo on Saturday for the season debut of Loose Gravel.
