THIS WEEK'S BAND: Carl Sonny Leyland Trio
Influenced by boogie woogie greats Albert Ammons, Pete Johnson, and Meade "Lux" Lewis, piano virtuoso Carl Sonny Leyland's repertoire also includes ragtime, early jazz, blues, rock'n'roll, and western swing styles. While he possesses the necessary vocabulary to pay tribute to the greats of old, his playing displays an infectious spontaneity, allowing each performance to be an opportunity to say something new. The Carl Sonny Leyland Trio is filled out by trad jazz bassist Marty Eggers and the inventive and hard-swingin' Jeff Hamilton on drums. Don't miss this rare Bay Area appearance by one of today's finest boogie woogie piano players! Facebook Event
