Pedro Velasco Trio

Wed 25th Apr. 9:30:pm

Pedro Velasco presents an evening of beautiful standards from the songbooks of jazz-age greats.

A popular player at the Nightjar, Velasco takes inspiration from players like Jim Hall and Gilad Hekselman, and is here joined by his musical kin – two outstanding performers, Greg Gottlieb (double bass) and Gaspar Sena (drums). Together, they'll explore the musical vibrance of composers like Cole Porter, Richard Rogers, Henry Mancini, Thelonius Monk – and more. If you’re lucky, they might even play a couple of Tom Waits or Bill Frisell tunes to surprise you.
