Thursday, Dec. 26th – 3:00 to 6:00 pm
Butterfly Jazz Trio
cd release!

Ready to relax a bit as the holidays wind down…and regroup before celebrating the new year?  Drift into the shop mid-day on the day after Christmas for a few sets of jazz that will put you in a solid late ’50s groove…  

remember those Miles albums like Cookin’, Relaxin’, Workin’?
 remember Wes Montgomery’s gorgeously unwinding lines?
like that.

Guitarist Kai Lyons, a local kid making some waves, is home for the break from a school back east where he’s pursuing his music studies.  Bassist Dillan Riter hails from San Jose, and is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with on the instrument.  Drummer Erik von Buchau has been an important player on the local and wider scene, having played with jazz statesmen including George Cables, Joe Farrell, Mark Levine, Bruce Forman and  Laurindo Almeida.  A really fabulous trio!

The new CD is called “First Time Around.”  Based on the evidence, it’s unlikely to be the last.
