$20.00 Admission BYOB: Air ConditionedCollaborations are nothing new in the history of jazz. Ellington and Strayhorn, Bill Evans and Jim Hall, Stanley Turrentine and Kenny Burrell are examples of artists who pooled their talent and ideas to create memorable and moving music. The Gerry Beaudoin Trio with Harry Allen is another memorable musical experience in this jazz tradition. Meeting at a concert together in 2009 they found an instant musical camaraderie and respect for each other’s music. That turned into a recording session months later and that recording “The Gerry Beaudoin Trio: The Return with Harry Allen “is the result of a that chance meeting in 2009. The Return features trio and quartet tracks and eight Beaudoin Compositions as well as two standards. “Harry was the perfect foil for me and my music, and I knew that first night we played together. “ Harry comments,” Some recordings are fun to make from start to finish. This was one of them. Great guys, great musicians and great tunes. We swung the whole afternoon away.” Selected songs from the Return were placed on the Grammy Awards ballot in three categories. After the success of this recording they returned to the studio in 2017 for their forthcoming fall release, “..And Then There Were Four”. The current Gerry Beaudoin Trio features his longtime musical collaborator Bob Nieske on acoustic bass and his son Gerard Beaudoin on vibes.
