The Jim Hunter Jazz Trio is no stranger to the stages, clubs, and exploratively minded venues of our region. They bring passion to contemporary music making and to the great art of jazz improv. They also play with keen awareness of jazz, gospel, historical popular music, and even – rare in today's jazz world – folk and classical tunes that resonate powerfully for us all. (This will also be the first performance on La Grua's newly refurbished 1930 Mason & Hamlin, an evocative, lyrical piano of great beauty.)
