Sunday, February 25th – 4:30-6:30 pm
The Grant Levin Trio, featuring
Sylvia Cuenca and Giulio Xavier
$10-15 suggested donation; students $5

We’ve been held in thrall by pianist Grant Levin ever since he first graced the Bird & Beckett bandstand in a couple different units in 2011 and 2012 (Home Spun Trio and Hawkeye), then in extensive collaboration with the late Houston, Texas alto saxophonist Terrance Tony (a veteran of Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers); in groups led by local heroes Noel Jewkes and Peter Barshay; and on countless dates here as a leader of his own groups (frequently including another Jazz Messengers vet, bassist Chris Amberger, as well as many esteemed and emerging local and regional players).

Grant leads a trio this afternoon that features the New York City-based drummer Sylvia Cuenca (a San Jose native with extensive experience in bands led by tenor titan Joe Henderson and the marvelous trumpeter Clark Terry) and bassist Aaron Cohn — Sunday at 4:30. Don’t miss it!
