This is true jazz super group, featuring John Pattitucci on bass and Dave Weckl on drums, with pianist Chick at the age of 77 still playing quite magnificently. The second is by the Joey Alexander Trio, with pianist Joey, aged just 14, recorded live in his home country of Indonesia. We will gather at 7.00 pm for a prompt 7.30 pm start.
