This week's Sunday Music Muse Day again features some great local talent in Trio East, with Rich Thompson on drums, Clay Jenkins on trumpet, and Jeff Campbell on bass. Lisa and I caught the first set of the Trio East performance at the Little Theatre Cafe on Friday night. We're sorry we couldn't stay for the second set, seems we missed the horn player Jeff Beal playing with the group. But before we left we were able to talk Rich Thompson and buy their latest CD, plus Rich throw a second at a heavy discount (thanks, again Rich). I really like the both CDs, For the Love, and Best Bets. They play a wide range of tunes from jazz standards and composers, plus striking originals. My ears perk up at the tunes of guitarists John Scofield and John Abercrombie, two favorites of mine,which they presents on their live set and on CD. Scofield and Abrcrombie don't get enough credit for their composing skills. By all means, check out Trio East, whenever possible. You're in for a treat.
