Classic Jazz Piano/Guitar/Bass Trio format: Hits from Nat King Cole, Oscar Peterson, Vince Guaraldi, Ahmad Jamaal , Jim Hall and Wynton Kelly trios @ Wunderman House
Larry Vuckovich presents an exciting jazz historic trio format. Before the modern jazz piano trios of piano/bass/drums such as Bud Powell, Oscar Peterson and Hank Jones trio formats, the original jazz piano trio included the combination piano/guitar/bass. Nat King Cole popularized this format. Art Tatum also at times played in this combination. Vince Guaraldi's first recordings were also in this format. One of Jim Hall's favorite recordings was done with Carl Perkins on piano and Red Mitchell on bass. Ahmad Jamal had a very successful trio combination with the guitar, and a hard swinging pianist Wynton Kelly recorded in this combination with Kenny Burrell. Larry Vuckovich is excited to bring this swinging jazz trio concept for the first time to Wunderman House featuring the outstanding Bay Area veteran Jeff Chambers on bass, and the young, new discovery on the guitar, Kai Lyons. Don't miss this special concert!
